August Guild Meeting

August 19th will be our next Guild meeting to begin at 9:00 a.m. with shopping, coffee, etc.  The business meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m.

In place of a planned program, we will have a "SWAP & SHOP" event at this meeting.  So bring any and all yarns, weaving equipment, etc. that you no longer need or want to see if someone else needs them.  Have your items priced prior to the meeting!

Check under "Events" for the specifics about the upcoming Shibori Workshop by Donna.  Everyone wishing to take this workshop needs to try and attend the August 19th meeting where you will receive your pre-wound warp along with instructions for warping your loom.  All looms MUST be warped  BEFORE the first meeting on September 9th.

If you cannot make the meeting, some warps will be left at the R&M Yarns Studio for pick up.  Let Donna know if you are wanting to be included in this workshop and need to make other arrangements to get your warp.

July Guild Meeting

The July meeting will be July 15th beginning at 9:00 a.m. with shopping and coffee.  The business meeting will begin at 9:30 p.m. followed by the program...to be announced.

June Guild Meeting

Attention all Guild members!

Reminder:  THERE WILL NOT BE A MEETING THIS SATURDAY, JUNE 17TH!

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.
