Welcome to the Weavers’ Circle

The subscriber-only learning space for experienced or advanced weavers.

PLEASE NOTE: The Weaver’s Circle Content best displays on a Desktop or Laptop Computer; you may find that some content does not display thoroughly on your phone. Apologies for that, but sadly we do not have an unlimited budget to get a better and more slick site created at this point in time! So if you only have access to a phone, please use the “Search” function to look for specific videos.

Please also check your SPAM folders if you have not received the automated e-mail with your account login details or password reset e-mails. There may be an issue for some with the Password Reset. If you have cleared your Cache and Browser History and you still do not receive the new password, please e-mail us on flaxworx@gmail.com, and we will try and send you a new password manually asap.

If you contact us, we try and get back to you AS SOON AS we can, but sometimes we don’t have a phone cover where we are, so please accept our apologies for any delays in replying! We usually try to respond to any messages within 24hr (usually way sooner!).

As a current (paying) member of the Weaver’s Circle, you also have access to the private and exclusive FB group we created, where we can share even more knowledge in a secure environment. Once you have become a member, head to FB and search for “Weavers Circle – Members only group”, and answer the question after checking your status; we will admit you to the group.

Come and join our dedicated bunch of weavers and learn those quirky little things that you always wanted to know about but were too afraid to ask 🙂

For many years we’ve been sharing our limited knowledge with as many people as we can via youtube, Facebook, and at various Wananga/weavers meetings.  We feel that some of the more recent content is a tad too advanced for these platforms and not secure enough.  Plus, thinking through the future content that we wish to share with the direction we want to take, producing these tutorials is beginning to take a long time and additional resources to create.  We are therefore delighted to be able to offer even more exclusive video tutorials (ad-free!) and other content (downloads) related to being a weaver or self-employed person, as well as some of my random more intrepid posts with you (cake, anybody?) to my most dedicated supporters!

Included in your monthly or yearly subscription to the Weavers’ Circle is:

  • Access to ALL video tutorials (exclusive, current, and future), ad-free as long as you are a member (currently over 60)
  • Downloads of related content and help topics (in pdf format)
  • Discount codes/vouchers for the Flaxworx Online Shop where you can purchase dye (RIT, iDye and Basic Dye), tools (haehae), calendars and woven items (limited stock) – NZ subscribers only for the Dye products.
  • Semi-regular “Ask me anything” or “Let’s talk about this topic” group chats or video chats (Facebook or Zoom) (wifi pending…)

All this, with more to come for less than a cup of coffee or tea for a week! Although if you wish to support us in getting one of those, you can also “buy me a coffee.” here

We want to reinforce that this is not the place to learn weaving from scratch. We highly encourage you to start by learning the basics of weaving in a class of some type (evening, online, full-time) and move on to my free youtube videos (with ads) BEFORE joining the Weavers’ Circle.  We hope you can get the most out of the Weavers’ Circle, and this suggested approach will ensure that you are ready for the content here.

ALL our current youtube videos (with ads) will still be free for you to watch and learn from! Our regular Facebook page and group will stay as it is and will have plenty of content for you to get stuck into.  If you reached the “end” of your learning by other means, there is always more to come through the Weavers’ Circle. So again, welcome to the Weavers’ Circle!

We look forward to sharing even more of my knowledge with you!

PLEASE NOTE: After signing up, you will receive an e-mail (make sure your e-mail address is correct!) with your login details (user name and auto-generated password). With this, you need to head back to the “Log In” area and enter these details there. This will take you to the “Dashboard” – where you can change your password and other information. After that, you can access the member’s home page.

Please also note that if you selected to pay by bank transfer, the membership is on hold until that payment has cleared; if you pay by Paypal or Poli it should activate immediately.

If you are having trouble with this, we can generate a generic password for you (but only if we are near the computer at the time and that is sadly not 24/7). Please email flaxworx@gmail.com for this. Apologies if this feels a little cumbersome! Nga mihi
