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.

Apr 2016 Show n Tell

Our members were extremely busy this last month as displayed by this long list of Show n Tell items and this isn't all that was mentioned!

Carding was new for Lilo while Lydia is very experienced.
Preparations are well in hand for the Sheep to Shawl exhibit at the Summerland Gardens 100th Anniversary Celebration in July. The fleece has been washed and was carded today so it is ready for our spinners to take home and get busy with their craft!
