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. 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!
