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.
The President’s Column
Welcome to members of the Weavers Guild of Miami Valley for our November newsletter. We are excited to have our Silent Auction and want to thank Penny Marsh for her hard work at putting this together. Bring something you have made or whatever you think will sell well, or you need to clean off a shelf so you have space to put whatever you buy at the auction!
The meeting will be held at 7pm at John Bryan Community Center on November 9, 2021. There will be a short get-together at 6:30pm for anyone interested in putting together a study group to work and learn on Rigid Heddle weaving. Our Second Saturday group will meet from 10am to 12pm in the basement at St. Mark’s Church in Fairborn on the 13th of November.
As we head into Fall, a time of beauty and Thanksgiving, I think of how blessed we are to be able to meet once again and share our love of fiber arts with one another. Don’t forget to bring your items for the Silent Auction.
WGMV, President 2021 – 2022
