Meeting Reminder & some bits…

Youngstown Area Weavers will meet on July 14 at 10 am in The Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds. We will be doing warp painting on plant based fiber only. Sheila will be bringing a selection of colors, if you want a certain color or have any questions, contact her.

Here is what to bring:

  • Pre-wound warp tied loosely, ends can be tied tight – soak the warp in warm water with a couple drops of dish soap for about 1 hour. Squeeze out excess water and bring to the meeting wet.
  • gloves
  • 1″ & 2″ foam brushes
  • tubs or buckets to hold wet warp
  • plastic table covering or drop cloth
  • paper towels

Canfield Fair Demo: The Guilds will be demonstrating on Thursday, September 2 starting at 10 am. Marilyn can only get 4 free tickets, so speak up by the July meeting to claim one. Please consider participating for a few hours even if you don’t get a free ticket…

For those of you with little ones, this came through the website…

 Greetings from Bend, Oregon. I’m excited to share a fun fiber animal book for kids.  The children’s book I wrote with my daughter, is now available both as a hardcover and an ebook (apple ibook). It’s about our first little alpacas coming to live at our ranch.  We tried to educate a bit about fleece.  As much as you can in a little kid picture book.

It can be ordered directly, now, from the Book Baby Book shop in hardcover: https://store.bookbaby.com/bookshop/book/index.aspx?bookURL=Whiskey-and-Zulu-Get-a-New-Home2
Or as an ebook: https://store.bookbaby.com/book/Whiskey-and-Zulu-get-a-new-home

Yardage Counter

This is a great tool! Several of our members have joined the creator’s Kickstarter campaigns on earlier projects and have been very happy with the results. Watch the video & get in on it…only a few days left to go.

YAWG Meeting Reminder

The Youngstown Area Weavers will be meeting Wednesday June 9 at 10 am at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds.

The program for this month is leaf and flower pounding – an exuberant and stress-relieving method to imprint natural designs onto fabric. It will be taught by Julie Kerner of With Needle in Hand. She will be providing prepared fabric and there will be a kit fee of $9.

leaf pound

Bring fresh leaves an flowers from your garden – with everything blooming now we should have a lot of color – a hammer with a metal head and a wooden board or cutting board. Wear old clothes…this is a messy one!

East Ohio Meeting Reminder

The EOHW will meet on Saturday, May 15th at 9:30 at the Leetonia Library.  We will be exchanging & admiring our coverlet squares.  

Also there is plenty of room to social distance at the Library and we enter through back door and hit handicap button as sometimes the door sticks – it is very Covid safe.

Meeting Reminder…Note Change

Youngstown Area Weavers will meet at 10 am on May 12 in the Ruritan Building – #23 – on the Canfield Fairgrounds. Continue past the Colonial Inn, turning right between it and the Office. The Ruritan building is on the left. This is a change only for May.

Coverlets squares will be exchanged – finally! Each should be labeled with the name of the weaver and the recipient. Mary Ann will be keeping track of the pieces to avoid confusion.

Bring your weavettes to work on again, Sheila will answer any questions & toss out more ideas for small projects.
