Our January meeting is “Weaving Wearables”. On www.weavingtoday.com there is information about the Handwoven/Vav Garment Challenge we spoke of during a past guild meeting. The challenge actually opens today. Handwoven will select among the entries – 5 loom-shaped garments and 5 tailored garments. All 10 will appear in the Sept/Oct 2011 issue of Handwoven AND they will be sent to the Swedish handweaving conference in Boras, Sweden, 2011. Just a very big hint form Lady NOBO as I know our members are very capable of participating in this challenge! Either way, be sure to come to the guild meeting wearing your wearable.
Also, a reminder for members to consider being part of the Nominating Committee for new officers. Although Spring seems a long ways off right now, our 3rd anniversary meeting in April will see a new Lady/Lord NOBO and court. Please come to the January meeting ready to volunteer a little of your time to partake in the Committee or a lot more of your time (it is worth it!) to submit your name in interest of being considered to become royalty for a year.
See you on the 27th!
