The Youngstown Area Weaver’s will be meeting Wednesday May 4 at 10 am at Tracy’s house in Salem. We will be going through 18 boxes of periodicals for the guild library, organizing and sorting out duplicates. Bring a lunch.
Please note – there are steep stairs to get to the library and there is a hand-rail.
So the Youngstown Weaver’s have no meeting in June. There will be a stash relocation event in July, more on that later. If you would like to join the East Ohio field trip, please do.
The East Ohio Weavers are going on a field trip on June 15th to the Kent State Fashion Museum to see FOCUS:FIBER 2019. Meet at the Salem Airport at 9:00, the show event runs from 10 to 5 and we will go to lunch after seeing the exhibit. Admission is $6. We will also need to know a number of who will be attending so we can arrange car pooling or if you are meeting us there, so we can make sure we wait on everyone before heading in to the exhibit. Please let Sheila Cubick or Roxanne King know by June 12 so we can know how many to expect.
Sunday May 19, 2019 – Dying with natural indigo
We will be meeting at the Salem airport at 10:15. Park in the parking lot away from buildings. Bring either a lunch or snack and what you may want to drink. We could stop somewhere on the way home to eat if works for everyone.
It will cost $30 and bring whatever you wish to dye. Yarn should be skeined & tied loosely, fabrics can go in as is. They do have silk & wool scarves available to buy to dye as well. It is advisable to wear old clothes and bring latex gloves if you have them. Also some zip-lock bags to transport your wet products home.
This is a fun opportunity especially for those who are not avid dyers. Maybe check out some pictures of shibori and try that too.
