LEFTOVERS AGAIN? WHAT TO DO WITH LEFTOVER HANDWOVEN FABRIC
Explore and experience creative ways to use every precious bit of hand-woven scrap. Some techniques require sewing, some a hot glue gun. Some ideas become great garments, some can be sent through the mail! Learn how to use some of the fusibles and stabilizers available, and learn to look at everything from old work, to the smallest scrap as an exciting new raw material.

ALL LEVELS ARE WELCOME
Daryl Lancaster, a hand-weaver and fiber artist known for her hand-woven, pieced garments, has been sewing for more than 40 years. She gives lectures and workshops to guilds, conferences, and craft centers all over the United States. The former Features Editor for Handwoven Magazine, she frequently contributes to various weaving publications.
