Guild Day 13 August

Not many weavers brought show and tell to Guild but here are some things we did see.
Chris wove this baby blanket or knee rug in twill blocks with yarn that was a mix of wool and alpaca. Great colours Chris.
Rose had been weaving linen huck lace samples for Cross Country Weavers' exchange and finished off the warp with a couple of strips to make earring hangers.
This piece should have been in show and tell but instead it was in the raffle. Woven by Pam Hilliard (only her second project) it is thick and soft as well as being cheerful and practical. Rose won it in the raffle and is pleased to have it in front of her fireplace.
We tried to give Win a hard time for felting instead of weaving but she is quite unrepentant. And why wouldn't she be when she can produce such gorgeous slippers.
This time of the year our members seem to go away in all directions though some of them are now returning. We look forward to our September meeting when we hope everyone will be back on deck.
