    New Meeting Sept. 20, 2021

    We will be starting off the 2021/2022 year with our regular meeting night, the third Monday of the month. The meeting will be at the Artisan Centre in Peterborough Square on Monday September 20th. We will be starting earlier than usual at 6:00 pm, because the Square closes at 8:30 pm. There will not be a specific program: meet and greet, show and share, and snacks. The library will be open and equipment rentals available. This is really just an opportunity for us to get together, so drop in any time during the evening. And of course, this is a great time to renew your membership! Still a bargain at $50. (Students $20.) Note that Covid 19 protocols are still in place – masks, hand sanitizing, etc.

    Double Weave Workshop with Susi Reinink

    On the weekend of April 26/27, our guild hosted a Double Weave Workshop with Susi Reinink.  We experienced two thoroughly enjoyable days of weaving and exercising our brains! Susi’s workshop definitely whetted our appetite to explore more of all the possibilities of double weave. Thank goodness we have warp leftover to play on.
