June 16, 2018 Guild Meeting -- Show & Share Items

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.
