October 2012 Rodrick Owen

How braids are made is never a mystery to those who make them, but to many of us they are mysterious and I for one  would love to know the answers. Braids to me are the most fascinating of all textile structures and they been an  absorbing interest for the past 40 years. It is this never ending journey I wish share with you as we look at braids from Europe, Asia, Japan and South America.

Hands On Learning November 2012

Paula’s first card weaving

Our November program is going to be dedicated to fun, hands-on activities. In one corner we will have card weaving with Ruth Temple, in another, spinning with Barbie Paulsen. In the third corner, saori weaving with Cookie Shuman and in the fourth, surface designing with Ulla de Larios. Donna Jeffrey will be doing bobbin lace, Gudrun Polak will be doing braiding, and Dorthy Tursby will be doing back strap weaving. There will be something for everyone.

If you haven’t tried any of these fiber related techniques, it will be a fun, informative, and maybe even challenging night. Try out one or two activities, or maybe all seven!

Come prepared to learn something new, get your fingers working, and have fun with your fellow guild members.

December 2012 Potluck!

Our December program will be our annual potluck get together. It’s a wonderful way to connect with fellow weavers, purchase hand crafted scarves and jewelry made by guild members.

Always fun and often funny is the gift exchange with the swapping poem. So bring your wrapped white elephant gift to be part of this Black Sheep tradition.
