2 ENTERTAINMENT SEPTEMBER 5-11, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE LIVING EDITION Hand-weaving classes offered at Hearthside House this fall LINCOLN – Lincoln's Hearthside House Museum announces it will offer its first class- es in hand-weaving this fall. The workshop will be held in the same spot on the third floor of the his- toric house where the Talbot weav- ers of the Hearthside Looms once crafted their nationally renowned textiles in the early part of the 20th century. The eight-week course provides an introduction to weaving on a hand loom, but takes on a bit of a unique twist in that it will be taught through the story of the Talbot weavers, surrounded by the origi- nal antique equipment that they once worked on. The class is being taught by Dana Signe K. Munroe. Students will weave sample patterns for their pattern books and a main project of a table runner in the pat- tern of their choosing from those historically woven at Hearthside by the Talbots. The course is limited to six students and classes will be held weekly for eight weeks on Saturday mornings beginning Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to noon. The fee for the course is $250. Registrations must be made by Sept. 10.
