    Jane Stafford’s Online Weaving Guild  for 2021 will focus on Lace Weaves.  BARN is sponsoring watch parties for each episode.  We will break the episodes into two viewings, reserving 90 minutes per viewing.  You will be sent a zoom link one day prior to each session. We will gather online and through the magic of screen sharing,  watch the episode and chat as we view them. You must be a subscriber to the JST guild, per agreement with Jane Stafford.  We hope to be back in the studio at some point, and will set up a "hybrid" model, allowing some to come into BARN and others to watch on-line.

    Details:

    • You can be a beginner or master weaver to join this group some knowledge of weaving.
    • You can register at any time. Although you are signing up for the whole series, you can attend each session or pick and choose the episodes you want to view. We may also decide to view part year's episodes if there is interest. Please verify your email address as this is where an email will be sent with the link to join this online class.
    • This class will be taught via the Zoom video conferencing program. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.

    More about the instructor Jane Stafford:

    Jane began weaving at the age of 21, purchasing a new Fanny with the help of a chattel mortgage on her Chevette. Before two years were up she was accepted as an under-qualified, but very ambitious student at the Baniff School of Fine Arts. Two years later she was a teacher’s assistant there and, in a few more, an instructor herself.  In subsequent years, Jane has had the great fortune to be able to earn a living doing what she loves most, weaving, and sharing her passion for excellence in cloth. Jane has been both a production weaver and a workshop instructor, helping students reach their potential across the continent, for over 25 years. She was the recipient of the “Teacher of the Year” award for 2014 from Handwoven Magazine. Jane now teaches exclusively in her studio on beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

    The Writers Studio is happy to announce the revival of Word Sprint-- a weekly time to write in the company of others. Using Zoom to come together, we'll write for twenty-five minutes, take a break, repeat. There is no sharing or critique of your writing, only fast-paced, supportive productivity in the company of other writers. It will be fun, exciting, and might be the thing to help you finish (or start...) your manuscript. These virtual sessions will help participants set aside time to write and be with other writers in an informal setting. 

    The sessions will be led by a rotating team of hosts including Jen Scheiderman, Amelia Ramsey, Kassia Sing, Genevieve Douglass, and Steve Bice

    • You can register at anytime even if a session has passed.

    This "Flow" bracelet is made using only two kinds of beads . . . seed beads and half tila beads which have two holes. The process of weaving this pattern is consistent with other bead weaving techniques with the exception of a more intricate thread path needed to accommodate beads with two separate holes.

    The weave is very accessible and meditative resulting in a bracelet so smooth and flexible that it practically flows around your wrist! The accompanying kit will include everything you need to complete one gorgeous bracelet and have a fabulous time doing so! 

    Kits will include everything needed to make your bracelet. Please verify your mailing address when you register.

    Students will need to have a good working surface and light, reading glasses (as needed), scissors and an adventurous attitude!

    Have you wanted to write a story but felt overwhelmed by the length of a novel? Have you tried writing a short story but 20+ pages still felt untenable? This class is for you! A short-short story (flash fiction) has two requirements, says author Fred Chappell: “that it be quite short and that it be troubling.” In this generative class, we’ll review the elements of craft employed by fiction writers (with a nod to the craft of poetry) and we’ll read and discuss examples of flash fiction from anthologies such as Sudden Fiction and Flash Fiction. We’ll compose our own flash stories by responding to some in-class writing exercises, which are designed to help you write succinctly while suspending disbelief.

      Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

      You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

      You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

      3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

      Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

      By twisting or wrapping your warp yarns you can weave distinctive textures and patterns in your cloth.  Learn to weave lace-like open areas as parts of a design throughout the fabric or as a notable edge treatment.  Discover how to make leno and then master the art of adding beads to the patterns.  See how beads can make the weaving pop!  If you’ve ben looking for ways to add more interest to your weaving, these techniques will get  you there. You too can create cloth that is visually stunning.

      Class Level: Advanced Beginner

      Homework: Warp the loom prior to class with 48 ends (24 slots, 24 eyes), 84” long, in a 7.5 or 8 dent reed with worsted weight yarn that is non-hairy, strong, and at least 2 ply. Thread the loom so the extreme right thread is to the right of the slot (for RHLs). Spread the warp threads with waste yarn and weave 2” in plain weave, leaving a tail 4 x the width of the warp hanging out the side of your dominate hand.

      The class session is divided into two sessions: 10 am -  12 pm, (2 hour break), 2 pm - 4 pm for a total of 4 hours of on-line instruction.

      Supplies needed at home: 

      350 - 400 yards of solid color worsted weight yarn that is at least 2 ply, non-hairy, strong and smooth (this includes your warp yarn), loop shaped dental floss threader, about 200 beads that will fit on your yarn doubled (I used 6/0 glass beads), scissors, tapestry needle, cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, pick up stick, strip of cardboard that is 1” - 1.5” x 10”, shuttle. Yarn should be wound into balls before class.

      This is weight loss without restricting “carbs” or counting calories. The key to healthy weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight is learning to choose the right foods that are satisfying and health promoting. This program based on clinical research and created by The Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine, will help you lose weight and stay healthy, all while bolstering clinical benefits such as lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, gaining better diabetes control as well as improving energy and mood.

Lots of tips and tricks, recipe handouts, as well as additional resources will be shared. You will also have access to Nancy via email to answer any questions between sessions.

      After a week of preparations and today’s lesson, you will have all the tools you need to start a low-fat, plant-based diet for the next three weeks. We will go around the "zoom room" and see how everyone did in their preparatory week of food shopping and meal planning. 

      Session 3: Getting into Gear - September 26th
      After the first week of the challenge we will discuss how things went; share successes and get support for things that were challenging.  You will gain some new insights from other class participants and may choose to share some of your own. 

      Session 4: Breaking the Food Seduction - October 3th
      This class will go over why specific foods high fat foods like cheese seem addictive and why foods like broccoli are not. Today’s lesson will address what we can do to break those addictions.

      Session 5: Keys for Natural Appetite Control - October 10th 
      This final class you will have been following a plant-based diet for 21 days! We will discuss next steps to creating a permanent diet change as we learn the secrets to appetite control.

      Flat spiral stitch is a variation of the traditional spiral stitch technique which results in a flat laying bracelet rather than a circular spiral. The stitch is easy to learn and meditative to practice. The resulting bracelet is exquisite and comfortable to wear. All bead weaving techniques relating to the flat spiral technique will be introduced and reinforced within the class and throughout the creation of your piece.

      Be prepared with a well lighted, comfortable working space, scissors, reading glasses, determination and a sense of humor! All materials needed to create one flat spiral bracelet will be included in the supply kit. Please verify your mailing address when you register.

      We’re excited to offer another salon via Zoom for writers of ALL levels of experience to read their work to an appreciative audience. All of this takes place from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a computer with a microphone.

      This is a great opportunity to practice reading for your own book signings and a wonderful chance to reach new readers and meet people who love words as much as you do.

      We will have slots for 12 readers to read five-minute selections. Keeping to a prescribed time limit is a skill and a courtesy all writers need to learn. (Of course you don’t have to use the entire five minutes if you have something very short.) Please register for "Reader" soon in order to snag one of these spots. We will also have plenty of room in cyberspace for members of the audience to enjoy some great readings.

      Format:

      1. Brief introductions. (Say your name, what you write, and give us a wave.)
      2. At this point, everyone except the reader will be muted by the host. 
      3. Five-minute intermission. Everyone will be unmuted to chat or do whatever needs to be done.
      4. We’ll unmute everyone, and those who want to hang out can chat for a bit.

      Very Important:

      Everyone who wants to participate, whether as a reader or an appreciative audience participant, must register for this free event. We need your information in order to send you a Zoom link.

      Please don’t be afraid to try this. I had my doubts that it would work until I took part in a Zoom salon with another group. It’s more relaxed than standing at a podium! We had a wonderful time, and it was great to see new faces.

        The Go Your Own Way Tunic is more a concept garment than a strict pattern… especially in this class where we will show you how to take custom measurements and adapt this pattern to fit your body and your life.

        This is, by far, our most exciting garment design class to date! We are combining our love of improv and abstract fabric piecing and bringing them back to our garment design roots to create new panels of fabric unique to each maker. Those panels are then used to create the Go Your Own Way Tunic. The resulting garment is loose, drapey, and easy to wear, vibrant, exciting, and as individual as you are.

        If you’ve come along with us for one of our improv fabric classes, this is a similar process but presents its own unique challenges that come with using recycled garments to create new, composite fabrics. Step-by-step we will show you how to create these new fabrics all the while avoiding those challenges. We will then use our FAB new fabrics to craft a unique, one-of-a-kind garment that is sure to become your new favorite item in your closet.

        Please note that this is a 3-session class. Sessions 1 and 2 will begin at 10:00 AM, break at 12:00 PM for lunch, and resume at 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM. Session 3 will be from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.

        Kits

        Thanks to the generous folx from Eileen Fisher Renew, students close enough to pick up fabric packs at the BARN facility OR choosing to have them mailed, will be able to use pre-sorted selections of upcycled Eileen Fisher garments as their base fabric for the tunic. We’re talking lightweight cotton and linen and blends of similar weight and content … gorgeous fabrics!  Kits are available on a first-come-first-served basis. The number of Eileen Fisher Renew fabric kits is limited, so jump in there fast and reserve yours today! And remember, you can use your own fabrics or upcycled clothes for this tunic. If you want a kit when you register, please choose whether you want your kit mailed or will pick up locally at BARN.

          Sashiko, the Japanese hand stitching technique for patching and reinforcing fabric is the hot “new” trend in hand stitching. Traditional Sashiko stitches and modern adaptations can be seen in the visible mending trend, in home décor, and on fashion runways. In this class, we will learn the traditional hand stitched patterns of Kogin Sashiko – a version of the sashiko running stitch that is worked by counting threads or “bars” in fabric to create stunning Japanese motifs of repeating geometric patterns. Once you learn the skills for creating these motifs, you can apply them on a larger scale to overall fabric embellishments and enhancements. Embroidery enthusiasts will love adding this stitching technique to your repertoire.

          Overview:

          Session one – 2 hours

          • Tools and how to use them
          • Reading Charts
          • Unshin - blocks
          • Start beginning motif from center out

          Homework: finish beginning motif

          Session two  – 2 hours

          • Tiling to make larger motif
          •  Adding blocks from unshin practice
          • Framing

          -----------------------------------------------------------------

          Supplies students need to have on hand

          • Thread snips
          • Graph paper
          •  Pencil
          • If you’re not buying a Shibaguyz kit (see below), please also have a piece of even-weave fabric such as Aida cloth (about 12” square should be enough), embroidery floss (Aurifloss recommended), a large Sashiko needle, and a ring thimble with a plate.
          • Optional:
            Magnifier lamp (like the Daylight Yo-Yo or Halo Go) – If you need brighter lights or magnifiers for cross stitch and embroidery, you will need that same lighting and magnifier for Kogin. You will probably see us working with one or both of these during class and we definitely use them when we are sitting on the couch and stitching.
