February meeting

The Peachtree Handspinners Guild will meet Saturday, February 24, 2018, 1:00 to 4:30 pm in the fellowship hall of North Decatur Presbyterian Church (NDPC). The door will be open at 12:30 with the business meeting starting at 1:00. February’s Program/Meeting is a social spin with a (weaving) twist. This day will be mostly social spin except for those of us who are starting or working on a small weaving project. There are a couple of requests.

First, if you have a smallish woven item that you treasure, please bring it to show off, especially if it is from somewhere other than the USA. I have a cute handwoven South American sash covered in little bulls that I adore. Your “bring” can be made by anyone but it would be nice if you could attach a note to show origin, maker if known, where you found it or who gave it to you and why you love it.

Second, this meeting is also intended to be a mini-social for those of us who recently acquired a small loom (continuous yarn, rigid heddle, tapestry, Navajo, etc.). You don’t have to be a newbie to participate; we’d love some experienced weavers to pop over and give advice/help or just weave for a bit so we can watch and learn. I expect we will move off into a corner so come prepared to weave for an hour or so. No pressure, come and go as you like. After all, this IS a social spin day!
