Coverlet Update

The next meeting of both Youngstown & East Ohio will be exchanging the finished coverlet squares. Please have each square labeled with the name of the weaver and the name of the recipient.  Mary Ann will be keeping track of the exchange so everyone gets their complete set. If anyone cannot make the meetings, please contact Mary Ann or Tracy to arrange for your squares.

Meeting Reminder

Youngstown Area Weaver’s will meet on Wednesday, April 14 at 10 am in the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds.

We will be assembling a cute woven tree with a cinnamon stick trunk. It will make a perfect package decoration or ornament. Bring the 3 Weavette squares from last month, scissors, extra yarn for sewing and a tapestry needle to fit the yarn. Sheila will provide the trunks.

The Boundweave workshop is May 10, 11, 12. We need a final count so please let Tracy know by the April meeting if you will attend. There is no charge for this workshop.

Coverlet squares will be exchanged next month…be ready!

Youngstown Weavers Meeting

The Youngstown Area Weavers will meet at 10 am on Wednesday March 10 at the Colonial Inn on the Canfield Fairgrounds. It’s been a while so bring show & tell of what you have been weaving this past winter.

The program will be weaving patterns into weavette squares. Bring a weavette (or weave-it or zoom) loom with weaving needle, worsted weight yarns & scissors. The 4″ square looms are easiest to work with but any size will be ok.

Union Loom Available

This came in through the website. Contact me for the personal information .

“I was wondering if any of your members would want and old union rug loom. I have 2 and only have space for one of them. The one to give away needs some repair. I think all the pieces are there, but it was painted and would need stripped or maybe repainted. I can send you pictures if anyone is interested. I just want it to go to someone that will enjoy it and get it working. “
