Weaver's Study Group: Rep Weave
One aspect of the guild weavers' group that is often overlooked is study group. This is a group open to all weavers who meets monthly for indepth study of one aspect of weaving over the course of the year. You don't have to be an expert, all weavers are welcome, from novice to expert. In past years, the focus has been twills, color interactions, Oelsner's classic book, A Handbook of Weaves. This year, it is Rep Weave. Rep Weave, repp, rib weave, rippmatta are used interchangeably to denote a type of weave structure using a plain weave in which the warp threads are closely set and produce the same pattern in different colors on each side of the project.
