An Important Message for the Guild

The guild has been approached by Carol Culbertson with a very unique opportunity! She is part of the John Bryan Potters group and would like to put together a show for the month of November spotlighting hand thrown kitchen pottery and handwoven towels!

Interested weavers will weave two towels that will serve as inspiration for the potters. The potters will then throw two items for use in the kitchen. The pottery and towels will be featured in their November show. After the show, the weavers receive one of their towels back with a piece of pottery, the potters will receive one of their hand thrown items back with the accompanying towel! it is a win win for all involved! The show will be held on the third Friday in November.

The towels must be completed and given to me by the end of September so that the potters can take their "inspiration" to their wheels, and interested members who want to participate, please contact me as soon as possible. Carol is also working with the rigid heddle weavers and has 10 interested weavers from that group.
