Guild Loom Projects
Our fall season wrapup is Dec 15th. We’ll be back at the Community Centre on Jan 4 for the 1st Drop-in of 2018 for more spinning, weaving, knitting, felting and other fibre arts! The 2017/18 full schedule is below on the left side.
I missed our Nov meeting so I did come catch-up on last season. We have a new Blog Post for Oct of 2016, that’s last year! I am working at them from both ends now. The Posts are published by calendar date of the event so look for it by visiting the Archives to the right or Older Posts at the end of each post. Enjoy and thank you for visiting!

|Gail H, a friend of mine felted these dryer balls for me. As we talked about how she made them on the drive home Donna told us a real easy way to make them.|
|Nature provides everything we need. This pine tree became an ideal place to dry these felted scarves. This picture should be submitted to Spin Off magazine.|

On Thursday, I set out to complete a challenge from Jen to produce a work in fibre that looked like my calendar picture. A tea cosy seemed exactly the right shape! With help from Klaudia I was able to complete this project in one morning. Our guild members are so full of enthusiasm, great ideas and helpfulness that almost anything is possible!
|Here I am with all my equipment and Klaudia to help me felt a tea cosy|
|On a background of white roving, I began to layer my design.|
|The process involves a little soap, more hot water and lots of rubbing.|
