May Show and Tell

Judy with her 8 shaft houndstooth twill

Win produced this monks belt overshot table runner for a wedding gift

We are so proud of Jen for weaving this overshot runner after last month's inspiration

Chis finished the overshot sample that was on her loom and now is planning to make a cushion cover with it

Betsy made this scarf for her son with yarns from Anna Gratton

Rose is enjoying working with lovely soft yarns like this baby alpaca boucle

Joan models Rose's alpaca cowl

Not her own work but this lovely collar is SO Jan

Joan recycled one of the guild room cushions by removing the cover, washing it and turning it inside out

and here is the other side

May Play Day

What fun we had on 18 May. Jan led us through the procedure for marbling paper. It was a glorious day (well. most of it was) so we were able to work outside. Everyone had a try and came up with some really artistic results. Here are a few photos:

I wonder what these wonderful pages will be used for.

De-mystifying the Overshot

 Jen was not sure what she was in for but got there it with a little encouragement
 Melanie quickly gave up on her rigid heddle loom when she discovered this

Noelene added a few more blocks to the crackle weave on the Guild loom
 We haven't seen Birgite for a while so it was great to see her getting back into weaving after a health set-back
Win refreshes her memory about the tea towel project we had a few years ago.
Anyone for another group project??
