A Study Group Exploration

For the past year, some of our members have particpated in two study groups. One group out of the Nottawasaga Guild based it’s explorations on the Stubenitsky book “Weaving with Echo and Iris”; the other, called SIG or Special Interest Group, has completed one area of study and is now moving to a new topic.

This will be an informal discussion covering what they've been studying but also how the groups work - how they decide what to study, where they meet, how often, whether there is assigned homework, etc.  Lots of information for those who might want to start their own group.

Kay Faulkner Workshop a Great Success

This 2-day workshop, entitled East Meets West - A Sampler, had us examining traditional textiles produced on backstrap looms, and then learning the techniques which Kay has developed for producing those same effects on a shaft loom.

The workshop was so popular that we ran it twice on two consecutive weekends in August. Thank you to Kay for a wonderful and inspiring workshop and to Jette's for her generosity in sharing her good friend during a short one week visit to Canada. (Some photos from the workshop will follow)

LibraryThing has come to Huronia Handweavers

Our book list has not disappeared - it has just moved! Thanks to the hard work of Carolyn Houlden and Marilyn Begley, the whole list has been transferred into LibraryThing at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/hhlibrary This program makes additions and deletions easy and fast, and allows you to search titles and find more information about the books by tying in to other data bases.
