January 9, 2019 Meeting

rabbit drop spin

10 am at the Canfield Fairgrounds, the Annual Roc Day Celebration!  Traditionally it is the day when women would return to spinning so  bring spinning if you have it – drop or wheel – and if not any other portable project to work on during and after the meeting. Bring along a finger food to share too.

We will review the weaving category changes we would like to propose for the Canfield Fair. Bring a list of ideas. The exhibitor’s meeting is on Jan 12 at 1 pm.

monkey winderWe haven’t had a regular meeting in a while so there should be a lot of show and tell to look at – bring what you have been doing.

 

 

Holiday Luncheon

The date for this year’s holiday luncheon is November 28. We will meet at the MCCTC restaurant in Canfield at 11 am. Guests are always welcome.

If you have not ordered your meal yet, please call Marilyn Dunn. All she needs to know is if you want beef, chicken or salmon.

And of course, bring a handmade ornament and take home a different handmade ornament!

Attention Demonstrators…

Tuesday Liz, Ken, Marty & Sheila went to the Expo center and got our booth set up. It is an impressive array of our skills! Watch for a TV appearance sometime Wednesday on channel 21 promoting the event.

Saturday demonstrators should arrive by 9:30 am. Park at the end of the side lot and enter through the side door. We are located straight through the double doors against the wall on the left. Sheila or another Guild member will give you a bracelet to come & go all day. Anyone coming in later, call Sheila’s cell phone and someone will meet you with a bracelet.

Have your items for sale and a list of them with a description and price for Sheila to keep track of sales.
Any concerns or questions, contact Sheila.

October 10 Meeting

Our next meeting is October 10 at 10 am at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds.

We will be getting organized for the upcoming craft expo and demos in November. For planning of space and product, here is what Sheila must have during the meeting:

What will you be demonstrating?

  • Weaving – what type and on what equipment
  • Spinning – what type, wheel or drop
  • Other techniques covered by our Guild – lacemaking, knitting, kumihimo, baskets

What times during the 2 days will you be available to demonstrate?

What types of product and approximately how many will you be bringing to sell? Sheila only needs a rough idea at this time in order to have enough table space and display racks. A detailed list will need to be provided that weekend.

Another demonstration opportunity…

Marilyn will be demonstrating at The Church of the Brethren’s Festival  (Western Reserve Rd near Rt 7 in Boardman) on October 13 from 11 am til 2 pm. Please consider taking a few hours to join her and spread the weaving and spinning word. Talk to Marilyn at the meeting.

Rosepath Sampler Workshop – Spread the word…

Class description, teacher bio and registration is now available for the workshop next May. Access them on the meetings page, under May 2019. Warps will be pre-wound and purchased from Susan before the workshop. To see the color options for the warps, here is a direct link:  YAWG workshop warps

 

Canfield Fair

Just so everyone can adjust their Fair plans – Youngstown Weavers will not be demonstrating at the Fair this year because of a scheduling conflict.

Good luck to all who entered, let’s hope to see a lot of ribbons shown off at the September meeting!
