The Weavers Guild of Miami Valley, Inc. was organized in 1949 to promote interest in handweaving. Today the Guild is a non-profit, educational organization promoting handweaving, handspinning and the textile arts. The Guild offers educational programs in fiber techniques and processes and encourages artistic awareness and excellence in the textile crafts through lectures, discussions, exhibits, workshops and demonstrations.
Thank you to all those who assisted with the Wool Gathering – from setting up
the tent, to demonstrating and helping out during the event, to taking down the
tent. And, of course, thanks to Eric and Ellen Ottoson for allowing us to use
their tent again this year. From what took place in our tent and what I heard
from other vendors, the 2018 Wool Gathering was very successful.
According to the calendar fall is officially here, therefore; it is time to think
about our upcoming programs and workshops. Our program committee, Shelley
Stevens and Lois Gladchild, have scheduled an exciting array of programs
and workshops this year. Please refer to the list of programs and workshops on
page 9 in this newsletter. Hopefully, you will take part in some of these events
and make sure you sign up early and pay your fees on time.
Looking forward to a wonderful year.
