2015 Weaving Exchange

Our blog today will feature 2 of the items created for our 2015 weaving exchange.

One of our members created a double weave runner with Huck Lace borders and Huck Spot Background for the 2015 weaving exchange.  The red and white runner was created to enable her to create a woven item for her double weave study group and to create an item for the lace exchange.  

After submitting the runner for the exchange she wove 4 matching place-mats.
The second runner is the item she received in the exchange.  It was woven using a modified Bronson Lace structure - Dogwood Lace. The original source of the threading was Handwoven May/June 1988.

Visit to the Deep Cove Weavers and Spinners Guild

It was my pleasure to visit with one of our member guilds, the Deep Cove Weavers and Spinners Guild on Tuesday, February 22nd.  The group meets weekly in a nice bright space in the Shoal Centre, Sidney, BC.  I can just imagine the fun they have on the weeks where they have show and tell.

Guild members are currently helping the Victoria Guild get ready for the Association of the Northwest Weavers Guild conference coming up in 2017.  The conference will be called Treadle Lightly. It should prove to be quite an exciting time and I am sure I am not the only one looking forward to it.

A big thank you for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to meet your membership.  More information can be found on their blog
