Palomar Handweavers' Guild Meeting 9/11/2017

Hello weavers and spinners.

Hope you are having a great end of summertime and are ready to start the next season with our upcoming meeting.

We are looking forward to seeing what item you have created for the guild colors challenge . The deadline for the challenge has been extended until December.  Of course, other show and share items are also welcome.  We think the challenge items will be a handsome display in the barn and at next year’s county fair.

Socialize at 9:30, business meeting and demo to follow.  Plan on a little extra time to find parking, since the Spinners’ Cottage construction is underway. Yay!

Opportunity table and library will be available as always.

Remember to bring a snack to share at break time. Coffee and tea will be available.

Kathleen Waln will join us to demo immersion dyeing of the loom controlled shibori she taught us this past spring.

See you soon!
