Has everyone been weaving? How about a little virtual show & tell for our members? Send me photos – finished or in progress – of what you have been working on the last few weeks. Does not necessarily have to be weaving, just what you’ve been doing. Share some inspiration until we can meet again.
10 am at the Canfield Fairgrounds, the Annual Roc Day Celebration! Traditionally it is the day when women would return to spinning so bring spinning if you have it – drop or wheel – and if not any other portable project to work on during and after the meeting. Bring along a finger food to share too.
We will review the weaving category changes we would like to propose for the Canfield Fair. Bring a list of ideas. The exhibitor’s meeting is on Jan 12 at 1 pm.
We haven’t had a regular meeting in a while so there should be a lot of show and tell to look at – bring what you have been doing.
Tuesday Liz, Ken, Marty & Sheila went to the Expo center and got our booth set up. It is an impressive array of our skills! Watch for a TV appearance sometime Wednesday on channel 21 promoting the event.
Saturday demonstrators should arrive by 9:30 am. Park at the end of the side lot and enter through the side door. We are located straight through the double doors against the wall on the left. Sheila or another Guild member will give you a bracelet to come & go all day. Anyone coming in later, call Sheila’s cell phone and someone will meet you with a bracelet.
Have your items for sale and a list of them with a description and price for Sheila to keep track of sales.
Any concerns or questions, contact Sheila.
Since we do not have a regular meeting in August, here are a few tidbits to ponder over as we finish up our Fair entries. The next regular meeting will be the picnic on September 12.
Cheryl Miller of Yarn Works in Niles is looking for someone to assist a new weaver who is working on a Schacht 4 harness table loom. Whoever is interested can use the yarn shop to teach in. This is a wonderful opportunity to help get someone else hooked on weaving!
We received some information from the Marshfield School of Weaving in Vermont. Find them at: Marshfield School of Weaving The setting looks beautifully relaxing and there is an impressive selection of classes in spinning, dying, weaving, historical reproductions and loom mechanics. Give the website a look.
And of course don’t forget the demonstration and sale in November. Hopefully everyone is busy making things for our sale table. Spread the word…
