August Reminders

Fair entries due by August 10!

Don’t forget to send your entries. We had a spectacular showing of weaving and spun yarn last year…let’s do more this year! New categories should make more entries possible.

East Ohio Handweavers

If you are interested in the basket weaving meeting to be held at Monica’s home on August 17th, she will need to know soon if you are attending and what basket you wish to weave. Here are pics of the fruit basket (L) or the Williamsburg basket (R).

September meeting will be the auction, so start collecting auction items.  To those that have never attended could be weaving supplies or just little odds and ends as residents and members both bid on items.  The funds we get help to support our guild and this way we don’t have yearly dues to pay.  We also will be serving more of a lunch to residents as well, so think as to what you might like to bring and sign up in August.

Youngstown Area Weavers

There is no August meeting. September is the annual picnic and beginning of the year meeting. It will be at Howland Park.

YAWG Meeting, Wednesday April 10

The April meeting will be at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds at 10 am.

The program will be presented by Liz Andraso – Coiling on gourds with different materials. Liz will have the gourds prepared and will bring all the supplies. Participants should bring a pair of scissors and any 4 ply waxed linen if they have it to add to the color selection.


This was found in the Farm & Dairy – looks like it would be a great day trip to see the coverlets. Do it quick since it only runs April 1-13.

Also to put on the calendar is Focus Fiber 2019 exhibit at the Kent State Museum. It runs through July 28. Note Sunday has no admission fee.

June Meeting & Free-Style Weaving Workshop

June’s meeting will be baskets at the Weaving Willow in Hubbard. Basket is your choice – please let Liz know what you’d like to make or ask her for some ideas if you are not sure yet. She will have some wood bases made in advance.

Once again, another successful workshop! The creativity was flying for 3 days with bright colors, novelty yarns, roving, locks, beads, buttons and bangles. Just the supply table was a feast for the eyes. Thank you Sheila for a great time.
