June Guild Meeting

Attention all Guild members!


Instead we will be attending a "Weave In" at the Chattanooga Library the following Saturday, June 24th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.!

Location: Chattanooga Public Library (downtown) at 1001 Broad St, Chattanooga, TN 37402

There is limited FREE parking, so if possible car pool.  You may meet at R&M Yarns to carpool.  If you decide to meet at the Store, please be there promptly at 7:30 a.m. (That will give us 1-1/2 hours to drive to the Library, set up and move our vehicles to the parking area before 9 a.m.)

Suggestions of what to bring:

1.  A portable loom to demonstrate weaving (pre-warped)
2.  Folding Chair
3.  Lunch & beverages (it may be hot)
4.  Handwovens to sell (please plan to donate 25% to the SVH guild treasury)

Why bring stuff to sell you may ask.........The Library is hosting a big "Arts and Crafts Fair" the same day as our "Weave In."  So there will be lots of people to hopefully purchase your items!

SOOOOOO.....there will be lots to do, see and demonstrate.  Let's have FUN!!!!!

Please call or email Phyllis (423.284.8209 or pnarus@yahoo.com) if you're able to come so we can get a head count to figure space and table needs.

Reminder: Bring Guild Challenge Yarn

All those wishing to take part in the 2017 Guild Challenge, please bring 20 balls/skeins of yarn that are all identical (yarn & yardage) to share with others that will be participating.  Up to 20 yards can be put into each bag.  It would be helpful to include a label with the total yardage for each ball.

Chris will be bringing a warp yarn for those wishing to use his selections. 

The challenge is to weave any type bag using most or all of the yarns you receive at the March Guild meeting plus adding your own yarns where and when needed.  The Challenge is due at the October 2017 meeting.

Let's all join in this Challenge.  It's going to be really fun to see the finished products!

Program for Guild meeting, This coming Saturday, March 18,2017


“Handwoven lace is a way to add interesting texture to cloth.  Lace weaves can be used in a wide variety of textiles, from delicate special-occasion items to everyday table mats and towels as well as for shows, scarves and other types of clothing.” (“Next steps in Weaving, What you never knew you needed to know” by Pattie Graver)
The program for March is “Loom-Controlled Lace Weaves” demonstrated by Phyllis.  A loom will be warped and ready for members to treadle different lace patterns.  We will try adding beads using the technique Carla taught us in January.
