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!

Dec Christmas Pot Luck and Show n Tell

Before our wonderful pot luck Christmas luncheon, we had Show N Tell. I didn't get many photos as the battery on my camera died half way through :( and there were many reports of items already sent away as gifts. The photo opportunities I missed were:
  Barb L's exquisite colonial overshots, handspun & dyed cotton vest
  Hélène's matching knitted pink ballet jackets for her granddaughters

  Michelle's woven scarves
  Marianne H's loom
  Marie's therapy knitting- scarf
  Diane's socks 

  Raelene's baby leg warmer 
  Joyce's fingerless gloves 
 
MaryAnna's 12 harness baroque sampler and
  Jen's goat puppet from Switzerland - it was so cute and so appropriate since
            she raises goats
Beautiful work, All of you! 

 
Greta's custom doggy sweater and her scrappy knits
Greta modelling her scrappy knit
arm/hand warmers
Karen showing her treasures from Cusco, Peru - a beautiful 4 harness woven wool (Llama?) cloth and her baby alpaca poncho woven on a 2 harness loom


Her poncho can be worn many ways. I was stunned that this was woven on 2 harnesses!
