AVL Weaving School

Course Registration Open Now

January Course Offerings

Join instructor Jannie Taylor for the first of our 2017 course offerings Maximizing Your AVL and WeavePoint for Lace.  Offered onsite at our Chico, California headquarters, the emphasis of these and all of our classes is on collaborative learning and hands-on experience, in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere.  We hope you'll consider joining us!

Maximizing Your AVL--January 23-25, 2017

This workshop is designed for new AVL weavers or for weavers who want to better learn the systems on their AVL looms.  In this course, instructor Jannie Taylor will guide you through the design rationale for each system on the loom and will provide special training in its use and maintenance.  Emphasis will be given to sectional warping technique (with both Tension Box and Warping Wheel), flyshuttle weaving, and use of the Compu-Dobby®.

WeavePoint for Lace--January 26-27, 2017

Learn how to create your own lace weave drafts using WeavePoint! In this course, instructor Jannie Taylor will cover the skills necessary for designing in three of the loom controlled lace weaves: Huck Lace, Bronson Lace and Swedish Lace.  Tips and tricks on how to use many of the special tools found in WeavePoint (including the new tools in version 8) will be shared, to help make creating a weaving draft quick and easy.
