10/7 Meeting

It’s always nice to see what people are spinning and their finished projects. After the Chelan County Fair, we added some new members.

Speaking of members, there will be a committee working on contacting people who have been members but we haven’t seen. We will also be setting up a contact list of members that can help with spinning/weaving/etc. issues. If you have a skill that you would love to mentor another member, please make sure to come to our meeting in November to sign up.

April 1, 2017 Meeting

There were no April Fool’s jokes with our monthly meeting. We had a great time at the studio. After our business meeting, there was show & tell. It was quite a variety of spinning & weaving. After show & tell, the program began.

Tanya & Debbie continued with their instructional program with weft- & warped-faced weaves on the rigid heddle. We learned about Ghiordes Knots to give that ‘piled’ look on a weave. Then we learned about weaving bands on rigid heddles, inkle looms, and a band loom.
