 Roxanne will be in charge of the program “Basketweave on a Triangle Loom” .

Loom wanted – If anyone knows of a Union or other 2 shaft rug loom in good working condition in need of a home, please contact Mary Ann or Tracy. They will get the information to the interested party.

 

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.

Any questions…contact Marilyn

East Ohio Meeting Reminder

The EOHW will meet on Saturday, May 15th at 9:30 at the Leetonia Library.  We will be exchanging & admiring our coverlet squares.  

Also there is plenty of room to social distance at the Library and we enter through back door and hit handicap button as sometimes the door sticks – it is very Covid safe.

Meeting Reminder…Note Change

Youngstown Area Weavers will meet at 10 am on May 12 in the Ruritan Building – #23 – on the Canfield Fairgrounds. Continue past the Colonial Inn, turning right between it and the Office. The Ruritan building is on the left. This is a change only for May.

Coverlets squares will be exchanged – finally! Each should be labeled with the name of the weaver and the recipient. Mary Ann will be keeping track of the pieces to avoid confusion.

Bring your weavettes to work on again, Sheila will answer any questions & toss out more ideas for small projects.
