Pictures of items woven by SVH Guild Members

Some of the items woven by our talented guild members and displayed at the June 16, 2018 SVH Guild Meeting.

This first picture is Chris Bindrim modeling a poncho he wove from alpaca using a triangle loom.

This next images are of Sandi Suggs' table runner she wove in waffle weave on her rigid heddle loom.

This scarf was woven on a rigid heddle loom by Phyllis Narus using 6/2 bamboo hand dyed by her daughter, Candee, from Knoxville. She wove it using a very small weft in order to showcase the hand dyed warp.

And finally a set of towels woven by Sandi Suggs on her rigid heddle loom using R&M Yarns new 8/4 Eco-cotton in the warp (it is available in 15 colors), and Peaches and Cream cotton in the weft in assorted colors.
