Elaine Bradley Workshop Reminder

This is a reminder to sign up for the September Elaine Bradley 2 day workshop. Details are under the Workshops tab.

The workshop will open up to non-members of the SVH Guild on Monday, April 1st, so members grab your spot before Monday.

Also, for those renting looms from Phyllis, she is suggesting we meet at her Studio before the workshop to warp the looms together. Day TBD as we get closer to the workshop date. At this time 4 of the 7 looms are reserved.

Show and Share from February 16th SVH Guild Meeting

There was a lot of Show and Share this month. Here are some pictures from our members' weaving work. Thank you to all who brought weavings to share with us.

Carla Boudrot brought a scarf woven on her RH loom. So soft.

Martha Ooten has been really busy (where does she find the time??) and brought purses, embroidery on weaving work, and woven earrings to show:

Phyllis Narus tried her hand at Turned Taquete with beautiful results:

Chris was busy in his woodshop making warping boards:

We have a returning member, Marie Whitman, who brought in a lovely Pine table runner from a design in Handwoven:

And finally we had a guest at our meeting this week, Brenda Derryberry, a long time weaver, who brought a wall hanging done in a Southwestern motif complete with woven in leather strips:

February Guild Meeting Program

For the February 16th Guild Meeting, this month's program is Weaving Tips:

As weavers we are always interested in hearing tips and hints on ways to improve our work; ways to make weaving easier; and ways to be more inspired in our creative process. This month Phyllis Narus will moderate our Guild Program by sharing her personal hints and tips. She is inviting the members to think about tips and hints of their own to share also. She will have a loom set up for demonstration. 

See you on the 16th!!
