Welcome Fiber Enthusiasts!
Triangle Weavers demonstrated a variety of weaving techniques at Carolina Fiber Fest held in April 2013 in Sanford NC
Saturday's activities centered around encouraging the next generation of weavers!
Kids had to opportunity to weave on 4-harness floor looms.
We also had backstrap looms with colorful yarns and popsicle stick reeds.
Simple plank looms are perfect for making placemats!
Our exhibit also included several educational displays about various fibers and weaving techniques.
We will play an ice-breaker game and have a chance to win a nice prize. Hint: Bring a photo of yourself as a child.
Start thinking about bringing something special for Show and Tell – something meaningful to you as a weaver: Did it inspire you to weave? Was it a “first” for you? Was it especially challenging for you? Or just bring a short story to share about why you started weaving. And we will exchange “Beasts in a Bag” for those who want to participate in the spring weaver’s challenge
Beast in a Bag Challenge
The BEAST: Select some yarns from your stash that you
- don’t like
- don’t think go together
- don’t want to use, and/or
- don’t know what to do with
The BAG: Put the yarns in a plain brown bag & put your name in the bag
Exchange Beasts at the May meeting
The recipient of your Beast must weave something by May 2014 to return to you (with the option to weave two things and keep one)
Get ready – this is fun!!
