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

Fall Update

We just received notice that the Christmas Marketplace is currently planning to go on. It is November 7 & 8 at the Metroplex in Girard.

Please remember that this is a large, free space for the Guilds. We can sell what we want, but must do demonstrations. It is a great opportunity to attract new members.

So if you still have time on your hands…weave something!

YAWG September Meeting

The picnic scheduled for September 11 has been cancelled. So everyone continue weaving – we have a show in November to prepare for! The October meeting will be a lot of prep for the show and a lot of show & tell from the Fair. Congratulations to everyone who entered, it was a nice display of different articles.
