Desert Sage Spinners and Weavers Guild is a very active guild located in Oliver in the Southern Okanagan, B.C. We meet weekly for 10 months out of the year and have large membership with 60+ members coming from as far as Summerland to the north and up on Anarchist and Richter's Pass in the south. It is a wonderfully supportive group where teaching is a huge part of our mission.
This blog is an attempt at keeping both our members and the fibre world at large in the know about our activities.
Yes, it is a bottle of wine in one of our gals work baskets. I started to chuckle when I seen this and asked Margaret what she was trying to knit that she needed to bring a bottle with her. She quickly explained that she had given Sandy some wool wanting nothing in return and as a gratitude Sandy brought her this nice bottle of red wine. You might have a lot of trying to give you something yarn related in the future Sandy.
Our guild gals are busy working on a project to display at the AMWG weaver's convention being held in Bellingham, Wash. starting June 13th. At guild today Marie and Barb were busy felting walls to build a little cottage. Could fibre walls be the new environmentally friendly choice for future construction? Who knows? Our guild just might be the forerunners in something big here. Can't wait until we can post a picture of the finished project for our blog readers to see.
