This is the first Teneriffe Lace Butterfly in the Teneriffe Lace Weave Along.
It’s made with the triangular Teneriffe Lace loom that I designed and Dewberry Ridge Looms builds and sells.
Here’s the video on how to make the First Butterfly:

The Teneriffe Lace Butterfly Body is a basic shape that is very useful and will be used in more than just making lace butterflies.
Here’s the video showing how to make it:

I have lost count of all the times that people have asked me how to sew hand woven fabrics together by hand.
This little video shows quick and easy ways of stitching together fabric that you have woven, no matter what loom you use:
I made a video tutorial showing how to weave on every other nail on the triangle loom when weaving with bulky yarns.
This creates an open lacy weave that drapes beautifully.
The shawl was woven on the 7 foot Dewberry Ridge Triangle loom,using super bulky yarn made by spinning together cotton threads with knitting machine and lace weight yarns.
The every other nail technique also works fine when 2 or 3 strands of medium or fine yarns are held together as if they are a single strand.
This is a very quick and easy way to weave a soft and drapey shawl.
The shawl in the video is a prayer (compassion) shawl made for a dear friend when she lost her Dad.
She loves the shawl, so I am pleased, because of course, I want her to feel that there is love in every stitch and that she can wrap herself in that love whenever she needs it.
Details: I spun a super bulky yarn by combining 7 strands of very fine crochet cotton and knitting machine boucle yarn- cotton and acrylic, on a bulky head spinner. The wpi is 5 wraps per inch. I plied it so it is 14 strands thick.

Tapestry weaving on small looms is a delight.
I’ve made a small video tutorial to show how to weave tapestries on the hexagon loom.
This piece was woven on the 4 inch hexagon loom from Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK, but it can also be woven on 2 inch or 6 inch looms.
Tapestry weaving on hexagon looms will work well for people who make their own hexagon tiles for their games.
This one is part of a larger piece that I will be videoing when it’s done.
Happy weaving! Happy hexagons!
I made a video that shows how to weave square, triangle and diagonal motifs on the Thumbelina, Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms.
But… it was 2 hours long! Whoa! That’s just too long.
So, I thought: I wonder if I can figure out how to ‘fast forward’ it?
And, I did!
But, I think that I got a little enthusiastic with the fast forward function- LOL!
I turned a 2 hour video into a 2 MINUTE video!
Prepare for take off… buckle your seat belt…. here we go!
Um…. next time, I might not speed things up ~quite~ so much!
I have posted a new video tutorial that is the second in a series of how to weave tapestry on the Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms.
I designed the Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa looms and Dewberry Ridge makes them. They’re wonderful!
This video shows how to
1- Start the weaving at the curved edge while weaving side to side.
2- How to fill the curved space that will form by using eccentric weaving (weaving that doesn’t go all the way from side to side).
3- How to weave dots of color.
4- How to use hatching to make a pattern- in this case, a circle shape in the middle of the weaving is made by alternating 2 colors of yarn.
5- How to finish the straight edge at the end of the weaving.
Here’s the video:

Video tutorial by Noreen Crone-Findlay showing some tapestry weaving techniques for the Vasilisa loom.
The following techniques are covered in this ‘how to’ video tute:
1- How to warp the Vasilisa (and Mollie Whuppie) loom
2- How to secure the lower edge
3- How to prepare for weaving by making a cartoon, and the protective layers of cardboard and plastic for the cartoon, then weaving in the shed stick
4- How to weave vertical lines using the ‘pick and pick’ technique
5- How to change colors to turn the vertical lines into checkerboard pattern
6- How to weave a circle motif in contrasting colors, showing how to weave up to the circle motif to create the supporting structure for it.
7- How to weave the circle in pick and pick technique
8- How to complete weaving the background
9- How to finish the upper edge
10- How to stitch the gaps closed
The Vasilisa loom is used in this video, but the techniques shown work just as well on the Mollie Whuppie and Thumbelina looms.
The Vasilisa, Mollie Whuppie and Thumbelina looms were designed by Noreen Crone-Findlay and are built by and available from Dewberry Ridge Looms.
THREE SISTERS LI'L WEAVERS
This is the first in a series of videos showing techniques for weaving tapestry on the 3 Sisters (Thumbelina, Mollie Whuppie and Vasilisa) Looms.
And, here’s the video
The Bound Double Damascus Edge works beautifully to finish Peg loom woven fabric:
It’s sturdy and secure.
Here’s a video about how to do the Double Damascus edge and then how to stitch over it for a Bound finish.
