The weavers gathered at Betty's for the semi-annual potluck. It was amazing, the food, the show and tell, the state fair winners. We have such incredible weavers in this group.
Check out Pat's summer project. I haven't figured out how some folks find the time and the talent to do such wonderful pieces.
Jeanette's finally off all crutches, casts and other unsundry apparatus, produced this wonderful rug...basically out of her "stash". Wow, do I need a bigger stash!
My thanks to Dorothy and Vicki, who produced many yards of fabric for the Breast Cancer Pillow Project. Believe or not, there were no color requests, just brilliant minds working together, or perhaps these ladies share a stash.
With the beginning of the craft guild year, we are reminded of where creativity meets the mind, the abstract, or simply the wonder of it all. Remember Weavers, we don't meet on out traditional Tuesday night in October, but on Saturday during the Ruby Leslie Workshop at Solon Library. Whether your project is large or small, enjoy the simple act of creating...weaving...
Open House Sunday September 9, 1-4 pm at the guild house
