Note: Guild meetings through December 2020 will be virtual; zoom coordinates will be sent out the week before the event.

Part 1 - Guild Challenge: Weave a Structure That's New to You; Weave a Sample

Are you stuck in a rut? Too many twill towels? Hyper focused on huck? Outrageous overflow of overshot?  Break out of that mold and try something new! Pick a structure that you have never explored before. Push its boundaries, try new fibers, blend some colors. Weave what ever strikes your fancy and be sure to also weave a sample for our new Guild Sample Book. Report on your discoveries in April.

Facilitator: Nancy Gaus

Part 2 - Identifying and Using Unknowns in Your Stash

We all have fibers in our collection that came to us without labels. Find out what you have and how to use them.

Presenter: Barb Decker

Facilitator: Cynthia Pendergast


Part 3 - Towel Exchange Show and Tell

The exchange will work as follows: During the September show-and-tell, we will hold up our towels and describe them. Names of towel weavers will go into a virtual “hat” from which towel recipients are drawn.  Weavers are then asked to send their towel through the mail to the person receiving it. If you weave one, you will receive one.
