Congratulations Shuttles & Needles on the Studio Inauguration
Please join us in congratulating Shuttles & Needles, our partners in India, on the inauguration of their new weaving studio!
On September 9, Shuttles & Needles welcomed people of all ages to attend their new studio and try their hand at weaving, wet felting and needle felting. Attendees also had a chance to try out the studio's Workshop Dobby Loom (seen below in action).
Traditionally in India, weaving has been practiced only by professional artisan weavers. By offering drop-in hours and workshops at their new studio, they hope to demonstrate how accessible and enjoyable these activities can be for everyone, no matter their age or profession.
Congratulations Shuttles & Needles and best wishes to you in your endeavor to share weaving and other fiber arts in your community members!
Workshop Dobby Loom Assembly Videos
We are pleased to announce that we now have some quick, WDL assembly videos available on YouTube here. These are meant to supplement the manual and act as on-demand quick-reference guides. For ease of use, they are broken-out into sections and have text overlaid describing each step. We hope to make more assembly videos available over time, and the A-Series will be our next release once editing is complete. Thank you Amy for all of your hard work on this project!
