Home – Western Reserve Spinners & Weavers

Be sure to join us this coming Tuesday at 7PM at Farmpark for our second of two fiber studies this year.  This time we'll be looking at wool... what are its properties, and how does this affect your project? Join Nancy, Jan, Nora and Susan for a lively panel discussion of wool and how  it's used in felting, spinning, knitting and weaving. There will be time for Q & A, and plenty of samples to see and touch to give you inspiration for your projects!

Don't forget that our room is open at 6PM for early arrivals.  Come and bring your current portable project and take a little time to work, or to share it with others!

See you on Tuesday.

As of July 31, we have 15 weavers registered for our November workshop with international weaver and  lecturer, Jette Vandermeiden!  This will be an exciting event, and with only 5 places left we hope that if you're not already signed up that you'll consider joining us in November.  More information is available on the workshops tab at wrspinweave.org - please contact Nancy Curtiss for openings.

Members of the Western Reserve Guild - 
 
Our Guild has been asked to participate in a textile event in Peninsula July 18.  The organizers would like a response next week after our guild meeting.  A rug hooking guild and stitching guild will also join the event.  
 
We will need volunteers to organize and staff the event.  This matter will be discussed May 26 at the guild meeting.  For those unable to attend the meeting, please email comments to me at svjanis@oh.rr.com.
 
Attached is the information sent by the Peninsula Foundation.
