Guild Meeting (22nd September)

Our next meeting will have Kit Heald talk about Weaving Warrington's Past in the morning.

Just a quick reminder that all pieces of work for the exihibition should be brought to the Sept meeting or if there is a problem they must be with Janet, Janice, Meryl or Avril by Sept 30th at the latest.

All pieces should be in an individual bag with a label on detailing the following;
  1. your name + telephone number
  2. title/what the piece is e.g. handspun and crocheted etc
  3. price/NFS

Thank you

Weave Week

Our August Weave Week course was extremely successful. Guild member Judy ran the course with Janice on hand to help with the teaching.
We had eight in the beginners section who learned to warp a four shaft loom plus some basic twills etc and four advanced weavers who tackled rug weaving.
The main aim of the course was to assist members who had their own four shaft loom but had never learned to weave, and also to try to encourage more weavers in the guild.
Judy and Janice are to be congratulated on an extremely enjoyable week that certainly produced a few new weavers and increased the knowledge base of the advance weavers.
The week ended with our summer picnic although the weather was too cold and wet to actually picnic outside!

July Members Day

July was one of our busiest meetings yet with 28 members squeezed into the small hall at Croft. It was cosy to say the least but everyone enjoyed the chance to chat, spin/knit/weave and generally catch up. The committee are investigating costs etc for use of the larger hall if meeting numbers continue to grow.
