Weave a scarf while learning the fundamentals of ridged heddle weaving. A rigid heddle loom is a simple loom with alternating slots and holes through which a warp is threaded so it can be woven into cloth. The looms are foldable, affordable and easy to use. It is easily portable even with weaving in place. Looms are available at Six Loose Ladies. A few looms will be available for students without looms.

Hand Dyed exclusively for Six Loose Ladies
Coolidge Blanket Auction
To benefit the textile collection at the President Calvin Coolidge Historic Site in Plymouth Notch, VT
The spinners and weavers from Fiber Arts in Vermont and the Six Loose Ladies Yarn & Fiber Shop in Proctorsville, VT recreated Sarah Almeda Brewer Coolidge's woven blanket. Sarah (1823 - 1906) was Calvin's grandmother. The wool was donated by Harrisville Designs in Harrisville, NH and Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney, VT and handspun, hand dyed and woven by many volunteers. The blanket is woven in two pieces just as the original was and seamed. The blue dye was chosen to match the original color before fading occurred.
Fiber Arts in Vermont will donate 100% of the proceeds from this auction to the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation for the President Calvin Coolidge State Historic Site's textile collection.
SOLD - the blanket is now on display in the shop until the high bidder picks it up if you'd like to see it.
