For this year’s Guild Challenge, we have chosen to play a round of Weaver’s Poker. Luck will deal you a hand of four cards that you will select at random out of a hat! Discover which (1) Weave Structure, (2) Design, (3) Fiber, and (4) Color you are to work with, and fear not! You can always put one card back. Then you will have the challenge of working with the hand you have drawn to create a beautiful handmade textile.
We hope you are as intrigued as we are by this year’s challenge and that will try your luck at the October meeting. The Guild Challenge this year will be led by Leslie Sieburth and Juliette Lanvers.
November is just around the corner, and that means the Guild Holiday Sale. It will be held at the Unitarian Church where we hold our meetings on Friday, November 15, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., and on Saturday, November 16, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Guild will take a 20 percent commission on sold items in order to finance the sale.
As you begin working on new projects, put on a little extra warp on and make something for the sale. Remember, anything you make is eligible, not just weaving. At last year’s sale, Guild members sold many items, and we should have good attendance at the sale again. We hope that many of you will contribute items for the sale
