Next up for our May Meeting (zoom)

Join us for our end of spring Fiber Feast at 11:00 am (later than our usual time) on May 22.  Have your favorite brunch/lunch to snack on as we take care of business (elect new officers), share what's on (or newly off) our looms, and prepare for Christmas in July by weaving some Danish hearts (although, really, hearts are for any time!). Follow the link for the instructions and templates if you want to play along!

Also, if you have ideas for summer study groups or projects (can I get a "whoop, whoop" for deflected doubleweave?), bring them so we can keep the weaving fun going through summer.

We continue to promote the time-honored craft of handweaving into the 21st century.
