December Holiday Brunch & Guild Challenge Reveal

Current and past SVH members are invited to meet at MJ Levine's home in Chattanooga on Saturday, December 14th, at 10 a.m. for a Holiday Celebration and Guild Challenge Reveal.

MJ will supply the drinks; everyone else should bring a brunch-type dish to share.

Please remember to bring your 2019 Guild Challenge Pillow in a NON "see-thru" bag or container.  Those with Guild Challenge items should plan to arrive 10 minutes early so Sandi has time to get them displayed properly.  There will be prizes!

Thank you, MJ for opening your home to us!

(Current SVH members will be receiving an email with written directions to MJ's home.  If you are NOT a current member and want to attend, please call 423.284.8209.)

October Guild Meeting

Program:  Martha Ooten, Guild member and owner of Alabama Grumpy Goat Farm will introduce the Guild to "Adding Surface Embellishments to Woven Fabric".  

She will provide all the embellishments and directions  as well as some hands on opportunities to try out the technique. Everyone needs to bring a darning needle. This will be a fun, informative program exploring another technique for our weaving.

Show & Share:  Those attending the recent 2-day workshop on "Summer & Winter" block weaving may want to bring their samples to show.  And, of course, any and all other items you may have woven recently.

Summer & Winter Workshop

The "Summer & Winter" 2-day workshop held Friday & Saturday, September 27 & 28 with Elaine Bradley from Atlanta was a lot of fun and a great success!  

Fourteen students participated and wove several different "blocks" of S&W possibilities.  See the "photo" tab for pictures.
