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.



Dear member of the Weavers Guild of Miami Valley,

Hope your summer is going well. Just wanted to touch base with a few reminders:

Up-Coming Events

Clifton Gorge Music and Arts Festival – August 24 (Friday) and August 25 (Saturday) 2018 –
Contact Lois Pelekoudas if you are available to demonstrate any fiber art. <cpelekoudas@woh.rr.com

Lewisburg Bicentennial (1818-2018) – September 8, Saturday 12pm to 6pm, or Sunday 2018 – contact Ellen Ottoson
to discuss which day may be better if you can join her! Ellen can help with a costume. We will demo weaving and spinning (Saxony
and Great Wheel) <lwycombe@woh.rr.com>

Wool Gathering – September 15 and 16, 2018 – Being held at Young’s Dairy. Contact Carol Baugh to help participate. Don’t forget we
will be setting up the tent on Friday evening, September 14 at 6:30pm. It was suggested those who participated in “Iridescent Weaving”
hang their completed samples around the tent. I think all the colors would make a wonderful display and attract a lot of attention. Please
make arrangements with me to retrieve your piece before Friday, September 12. <carol-baugh@woh.rr.com>
