Did you know the BARN Fiber Studio has five different focus areas?

They are: Weaving, Surface Design and Dye Lab, Sewing, Needle Arts, and Basketry, and there is always something happening in each.

Here are just a few of many upcoming opportunities:

Needle arts include embroidery, spinning, knitting, and crocheting. Get started with Knitting 101 on Feb. 24, or get on the waitlist for Crochet 101.

For aspiring sewists, our studio has four different types of sewing machines – embroidery, serger, sewing, and industrial. Get started quilting in the new Quilt Block-of-the-Month Club, where you’ll learn tips and tricks, and create a new block every month, or fine-tune your basic sewing skills while making Luxurious Pillows on Feb. 23.

Have an interest in natural dyeing? Sign up for world-renowned artisan Kathy Hattori’s two-day class on Sashiko Thread and Japanese Dyes on March 23-24.

There are upcoming opportunities for both youth and adults to learn rigid heddle loom weaving. Adults can take this Feb. 28 introduction. Kids aged 10-14 can sign up for a three-session Youth Maker Monday course starting on March 4 to learn a balance weave and leave with a handwoven scarf!
