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.




I hope you all have survived Trick or Treat!
I guess growing season is pretty much over and now is the time for weaving, spin-
ning, knitting, crocheting, tatting, quilting, embroidery, or whatever your fiber interests are.
I heard that the braided rug workshop was a great success. I enjoyed my vacation
time with my grandson, but I sure wished I could have participated in the braided
rug workshop. Maybe those of you who took the workshop can pass your knowl-
edge along to some of us who could not attend. I look forward to seeing your finished rugs at show and tell during our November meeting.
Speaking of the November meeting. Our November program is a presentation
from De-De Heeter about her trip to Ireland. De-De is a very talented fiber artist
and I am looking forward to her talk. Then, the holidays will be upon us and it will
be time for our Holiday Dinner get-together at the Bethel Lutheran Church on December 12.
But 2018 will be an exciting year with programs and workshops that include:
Naalbinding, spinning, iridescent weaves and natural dyeing. And do not forget
the show at the Yellow Springs Senior Center during January and February. Re-
member the Senior Center staff would like your entries by the first part of Decem-
ber 2017.
The WGMV By-Laws Committee and the Board members are currently meeting,
hopefully, to finalize the latest version of our by-laws. We are also discussing other
issues such as the feasibility of using PayPal, social media, and up-coming pro-
grams as they relate to our finances. (Minutes on Pg. 12 inside!)
Hope to see you at the November meeting.
