YAWG Meeting Reminder

The next meeting of the Youngstown Area Weavers is Monday September 13 at 11 am in the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds.

It is the picnic, bring a covered dish to share.

For the project, worsted weight yarn is recommended for a nicely woven star (the gold one). DK weight is ok (the blue one), but leaves holes when the squares are sewn together. So bring a pin loom and yarn to weave with or 6 squares ready to assemble. Plus the yarn for sewing together, a tapestry needle to fit the yarn, a decorative button if desired and scissors. Instructions and Poly-fill will be provided.

Meeting Change!!

Because of the timing of the Fair this year, Youngstown Area Weavers Guild will meet Monday September 13 at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds at 11:00. It is our luncheon / picnic…the Guild is providing chicken. Bring a covered dish to share.

Also bring your weavette or pin loom and yarn – Sheila will be sharing the pattern for a cute star ornament. Show & tell your dyed yarn from the summer dye day and what you entered in the Fair.
