Guild Loom Projects

Guild Announcements:

Our 2018/19 Schedule is on the left side of the page and just below it, “Local Okanagan Resources”.

If you are new to weaving or unfamiliar with some terms, the sites Weave Structures and Plain Weave Variations will help. I like this article on Mixing Twills for its practical learning. You’ll find lots more reference material under Lynn’s Virtual Library on the left side of the page.

Posts are published by calendar date of the event so look for them by visiting the Archives to the right or Older Posts at the end of each post.

Betty B. knitting a very interesting hand bag.  Will try to get some pics to post when it is finished

Another busy drop in day at guild.   Next week is our regular monthly meeting and show and tell.  If we didn't have show and tell I'm afraid I'd have many more UFO's hanging around waiting to be finished.  I came home ready to finish the three scarves that need crocheted flowers on them.  I need to learn to crochet.  Donna A gave me a "30 second lesson" one day when she popped in.  Will it be enough!  You girls will know next Thurs. if I bring finished scarves or not.
Last week Marianna C. was sitting picking cotton seeds out of cotton balls she had grown in her garden last year.  I was interested in what she was doing and brought home a few seeds to try planting.  Soaked them all week and they sprouted so planted them in an egg cartoon until they are big enough to plant outside.  I'm sure we could grow crops of cotton in our valley.  Now wouldn't that be interesting to have a cotton field next to a vineyard.  Any cotton pickers amongst our group?  Not a profitable venture and it seems we do everything for money today and never just for the fun of doing it.  Marianna  is going to spin her harvest into wicks for her home made candles.   Apparently you can buy genetically altered seeds that grow colored cotton.   If anyone in our local cyber world has tried this let us know. 

Klaudia D crafted this happy tea cozy.

And then decided it could double as this happy, delightful little hat.  You are so much fun Klaudia D.

 Our loom projects are coming along nicely after a frustrating start for our loom mistress.  Thanks Linda for you patience and perseverance.  The gals who have signed up for this project appreciate you.
