In Our Library - The Home Workshop Series

Over the years he Guild of Canadian Weavers has certainly had many great weavers in their membership. Many of these weavers contributed to our weaving community through the guild as well as sharing their knowledge by writing. Winifred Mooney and Nell Steedsman are two such ladies.

They created a series of booklets entitled “Home Workshop Series”. They created a total of 8 booklets, assisting weavers to learn about different techniques. Each booklet focuses on a particular technique and begins with a definition. Full instructions are given for each set of samples and weavers are encouraged to continue exploring the technique in their own creative way.
