Johnda Houston unexpectedly passed away recently. Flowers were sent by the Guild.
Great wheel needs a home – was used for decorative purposes only and may not have all its original parts or is usable. It has been in a garage for the past 15 years. Contact Tracy for the owner’s details.
It is with sadness we share the passing of longtime weaver Florence Highfield…
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.
Katherine Dunlevey – you may remember her little purse creations we saw several years ago – is downsizing her weaving book library. Attached is a list she sent of what is available. At the end is how to contact Katherine if you are interested in any of them. Check this out soon since she will try to come to our meeting Wednesday and can bring them then. If you are not coming to the meeting and there is something you want, Tracy can pick it up for you.
Katherine’s Book List

felting needles, styrofoam or a soft sponge to felt on, wool fleece or roving, open top cookie cutters – lights are pictured, or ornaments, bells, stars, trees… whatever you would like a garland of
