April 2018 Guild Meeting
  Held at the Meadowbrook Center in Shawsville from 2pm - 4pm
A little over a year ago, Mauna H. did a great presentation on Animal Fiber. Mauna is back this month to talk to us about Plant Fiber, its attributes, uses, finishing, etc. Bring in your projects that use plant fibers to share with the group (Mauna has given most of hers away!).

Extreme Warp Makeover Workshop
  with Robyn Spady
This is an on-loom workshop that is a combination of weaving and presentation/discussion. During this workshop, we will explore the versatility of a single threading by “making over” the threading you choose from one of the three provided in a
multitude of ways by changing the treadling sequences and wefts. At the same time, we will be covering the fundamentals of many common and uncommon weave structures. Even though the threadings you can choose from only require four shafts, we can discuss how the variations may be applied to threadings that require more than four shafts if you wish. You will warp your floor or table loom prior to the workshop and weave only on your own loom during the workshop.

May 2018 Guild Meeting
  Held at the Meadowbrook Center in Shawsville from 2pm - 4pm
Note: This meeting is one week later than normal due to conflict with Mother's Day.

It's Annual Yard Sale time. Clean out your closets, dig into those drawers and cabinets and find all those tools, fiber and whatnots that you don't use or don't need and bring them along. You may even find something at the sale that you can't do without!

This is also when the Guild Towel Exchange towels will be disbursed - come and see the creative way that members answered the challenge of picking a weave structure from a hat!
