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.

Show n Tell for Jan 14, 2016

The first Show n Tell of 2016 produced this wonderful and varied collection of achievements:
Jen has woven many mohair blankets for others. Now she has made one for herself. The orange mohair is from Jen's own goats, carded, dyed and spun by her. It's beautiful Jen!
Lynn's mastery of weaving is shown in these beautiful 12 harness scarves
in snakeskin design. The blue one is silk and the other two are bamboo.
This sheep and lamb are special to Marianne H because
they are knitted using the first yarn she ever spun.
She wo
ve the yellow bag with the Inkle strap from findings in her stash.
Greta's free form crochet
Marie's tea towels and her hand dyed alpaca

Hélène's child's knitted shawl and a
knitted candle wrap in cable stitch

Klaudia's double knitted mohair and wool fingerless gloves.
Stephanie's Work Sock Tea Towels
Michael had enough of watching Stephanie have fun with her looms.
He is challenging himself with this scarf on her baby wolf loom.
Lilo's Hand dyed and spun alpaca yarns
Jan's place mats and runner
Yvonne knit this wool sweater for herself
Maggie's knitted cowl above and texting mitts
whose ends pop off to reveal fingerless gloves

Sue has one less ufo now that
she's completed this knitted bag
with wood handles
