Guild Loom Projects

Guild Announcements:

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.

Guild News

Plans are underway for the Oliver & Community Craft Fair scheduled this year for November 15th and 16th.  The guild will have a booth showcasing the many and varied products of our talented members.

Marg H. is coordinating a Spinning Retreat in Osoyoos on March 21/22 2014.  The estimated cost for the retreat is $255.00 and will be held at Walnut Beach Resort.

Update from Margie  (my apologies for the tardiness of this post)

Last Sat. we woke up to a dull, glumy day and we decided it was a good day to leave home and do a road trip.  About 10:00 a.m we headed south and ended up in Tonaskat, Wash. for lunch.  The purpose of our trip was to find the new yarn shop Marg H. told me about at guild, Bell, Hook and Spindle.  And right on main street is the most inviting window display in one of Tonasket's old, heritage buildings. 
Lindy Weber is a very upbeat, delightful gal & within a few minutes you feel like you've known her forever.  She is a quilter, knitter and just recently has started to spin fibre.  Tea is on all the time and her sitting area beckons you to sit awhile, relax and have a cup of tea.  She is certainly an asset to the little town of Tonasket.  Her husband is into restoring old spinning wheels and a room in their little shop is set up to display them.  
So for those of you who would like to do a road trip visiting Lindy in Tonasket is well worth the short drive across the border.
