East Ohio Handweavers will meet on Saturday February 18 at 9:30 am at the Leetonia Library. We will have a guest speaker – Eileen Novotny of the Ursuline Prayer Shawl Ministry will be sharing the work they are doing. They also accept donations of acrylic yarns to make the shawls, so if you have some to donate, feel free to bring it.
After the speaker, we will share the sagas of our towels from the recent exchange…what we chose, why we chose it, what went well, what did not. No matter what they were all wonderful!
