I hope you are as excited as we are to start the knit-a-long. Yesterday we realized there were a few technical issues in uploading the videos. We figured out the problem, finally. The videos are being uploaded as we speak. I am hoping they will be available as soon as tonight or first thing in the morning. Sorry for the delay.
We are almost finished with the first set of video classes. Then we hit a snag. We want to keep the classes generic and not machine focused. We wanted to be able to tell you to "put your machine to hold" and have everyone know how to do it on their particular machine.
Toia has an intense interest in Indigenous Weave Structures. She received the title Master Ashante Kente Weaver from Adamwomase, Ghana, West Africa in 2009. At that time, she was the only female, American weaver to achieve the title. She learned to weave Taanko from a Maori tribe of New Zealand. It is her goal to help preserve the indigenous structures through video and woven cloth.
