Meeting Saturday November 21

Looks like the Guild is on for this Saturday!  We will be meeting at 9 am at Monica’s home. There is large open space, bring your masks. Contact Monica if you need directions.

Roxanne will give us a presentation on Krokbragd, a boundweave technique. This will be a nice introduction to Youngstown’s May workshop.

Meeting October 14

The Youngstown Area Weavers will meet on Wednesday October 14, 10 am at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds. As everyone knows, our group is small and the room is large, so there are no worries about distancing, bring your mask and a coffee cup. There will be coffee & tea available and some snacks.

We will be deciding on what the Guild will be doing for the next year for programs, workshops… so have some ideas ready to toss around. Also, bring show & tell – with all this at-home time, there ought be lots to show!

Don’t forget the upcoming Spinning  & Weaving Week! Check out all the great sales at HGA’s website – SWW Sales

Loom & Equipment for sale

This came in through the website. If anyone is interested, contact me for the seller’s direct contact information. She requested it not be made public.

Due to Coronavirus and Covid-19, unfortunately I must sell my loom. This has hit my family very hard with loss of life as well as loss of employment, therefore forcing me to consider what I need vs. what I want. I do not need my loom.
If you know of anyone who is interested in purchasing it for a fair price please provide them with my email address. It includes 8 harnesses, two reeds (10 & 12), shuttles, a sley hook and a warping board.
I am unable to attach photos but have them available.
I live near New Castle and could deliver if need be.
I thank you in advance for your help.
Sincerely,
April

Coverlet Project

For those weavers who are participating in the coverlet project this year…

Gasper’s Garden is now open every day for business. It is a centralized location for drop off & pick up of yarn for the coverlet blocks. Wind the skein into 300 yard balls to exchange with the other weavers. Mary Ann will hold onto the balls and hand them out to whoever needs them to keep weaving.

I have seen several finished pattern blocks and this project is going to turn out beautifully!
