Exciting news! On April 1 we opened up our fantastic Fall Weaving Workshop on 4S and 8S Twill Towels with Susan Conover to those outside of the guild, and we already have two registrations! That bring our total to 10. Only 5 spaces left!
We are looking forward to learning more about working with finer threads, and in the process be able to weave some beautiful twill towels. I've seen samples of the finished products up close, and there are some lovely twill variations that could be used in so many different projects. Learn more about this workshop by going to the workshops tab on the website, or by contacting Nancy Curtiss, 2018 Programs and Workshops Chair.
Spring - Our May Dye Workshop with Carol Soderlund is full! One participant needed to step down, but her space was quickly picked up by one of the members on the wait list.
Fall - Our September Weaving workshop continues to fill up. As of today we have 9 of 15 spaces filled. If you're a weaver who has toyed with the idea of weaving fabric for lightweight jackets, blouses, or shawls and scarves, it's important to know how to work with finer threads. This workshop will equip and empower you to be able to do just that. Not only can you learn how to keep these threads under control, but by the end of the workshop you'll be well on your way to having some lovely twill towels for yourself! Priority registration for WRSW members continues through Saturday, March 31. On April 1 we'll be opening up registration to non-guild members. I have heard that this workshop has already been posted in another local guild's newsletter, so we're sure to fill up fast. For more information, please go to the Workshops tab.
With one week into the registration period for our Fall Weaving Workshop working with fine threads on 4 or 8 shaft twill towels, we now have 7 of 15 openings filled! We also have several others who have expressed interest but for whom I haven't yet received any registration information. Please remember that this workshop will open to non-guild members beginning April 1, so don't linger if you're planning to attend! More information may be found on our workshops tab. Thanks!
