This is an introductory class for designing with patterns using weaving software as a tool. You will learn how to enter a simple threading draft, tie-up and treadling draft into a weaving software and create a drawdown. You will learn how to create pattern with two or more blocks. You will create four profile drawdowns and enter the threading for overshot weave. You will also learn how to print your design as a drawdown, threading draft, treadling draft with color and more. No more writing out your threading drafts by hand for warping your loom. This class is appropriate for new weavers and more experience weavers who want to learn the basics of pattern weaving and using weaving programs to design their projects.
