SEFAA Center 3420 W. Hospital Ave Chamblee, GA 30341



Learn to weave sturdy bands with an inkle loom – a simple, easy-to-use, and portable loom. You’ll learn to warp an inkle loom, read inkle patterns, and weave an inkle band. Pick your colors and your pattern(s) and leave with a band you can use for trim, a choker, a dog leash, a guitar/purse strap, or … This will be a full day of weaving fun!

Elke Shubert was born and raised in Walheim, a small, old German village located near the Black Forest. When she moved to the US in 1991, she brought with her the knitting and crochet skills that her mother, aunt, and grandmother had taught her as a young child. Elke added spinning and weaving to her textile toolbox in 2012, and she has taught spinning, weaving, and knitting for the past seven years. She lives in Douglasville with her husband, five parrots, and four cats.
