We are excited to finally launch our 22nd weave-along, the Kirsten Affinity Bracelet.
Today we are excited to officially announce our 21st weave-along!
We will be showing you how to make a gorgeous tapestry eyeglass case just like the one you see here.
Take an adventure, get off the grid, let your wefts do some dancing. This project can be done by anyone interested in tapestry weaving. It may look difficult, but trust us, once you get into the rhythm of it, you will have found your new favorite techniques.
What's a Weave-Along?
A weave-along is an online course. While you do need to purchase the kit to participate in this particular weave-along, the actual course is completely free. Claudia Chase and Elena Zuyok of Mirrix Looms will lead participants through a project woven on a loom. Every Sunday, participants will get an email going over what had been worked on the week before and giving instructions and tips for the week ahead.
I'm not sure I've ever been as impressed by the general quality of pieces in a weave-along as I have been during Weave-Along 18. It just goes to show what talented weavers, beginners and experienced weavers alike, we have in our community. Below are just a few of the bracelets woven by weave-along participants. Thank you to everyone who took part! We hope you enjoyed this weave-along!

There are two types jewelry most women have: The jewelry you wear all the time and the jewelry that sits in your jewelry box waiting for a special occasion. This bracelet, made of silk and crystals, falls into that first category. In fact, you're never going to want to take it off your wrist.
For our eighteenth weave-along, we will be making this gorgeous bracelet.
What's a Weave-Along, you ask?

Participants are encouraged to ask questions and engage with other members of the weave-along via email and social media sites including the Mirrix Facebook Page, Mirrix Facebook Group and Mirrix Ravelry Page.

Thanks to everyone who participated in Mirrix's 16th Weave-Along. We really enjoyed viewing all of your necklaces and seeing the fun and unique design and colors decisions you each made. We hope you had fun!
A few years ago, Mirrix’s CEO Claudia Chase came up with a fun and easy way to combine beads and fiber on a Mirrix Loom. Using the shedding device, beading cord, 8/0 beads, silk and novelty yarn Claudia came up with the first Tapestry/Bead Cuff Bracelet.
The project took off almost immediately and has been featured in Beadwork Magazine, Beads, Baubles & Jewels and in our class on Craftsy.
