Syracuse Weavers Guild

Supporting Weaving and Fiber Arts in Central New York Since 1960

Guild Challenge 2020-2021

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.


Create a Sample Card

This part of the challenge is optional. After downloading the sample card from the Library web page, print it out on cardstock (good) or archival quality paper (better).  Fill in as much of the card as you can, but it’s okay to leave some areas blank.  The idea is to have a friendly resource, both from the point of view of the user and from the person filling out the form.


Weave a sample and affix it as instructed to the card.  Your sample should be roughly 4" x 4" or larger, but no bigger than 8.5"x11".  The edges of your sample can be stabilized with fray check, watered down white glue, or machine stitching.


Plan to submit your sample card at the April meeting.  Weavers are encouraged to continue submissions to our Guild Sample Book into the future.

Wanted:  A volunteer curator is needed to maintain our book and bring it to monthly meetings for easy access to members.
