Band weaving with GBFG and Alabama Designer Craftsmen show this weekend!

It will be a good weekend for fiber enthusiasts in Birmingham (and sadly, I will be on a train to New Orleans).

Warming up for planned workshops with Laverne Waddington in the spring, the November meeting Saturday November 12 will be focused on band weaving, not only a wonderful skill to have in your fiber arsenal (it’s war people, we must continue to fight the machines!) but a wonderful way to start weaving if you have never tried.  Several of our members will be sharing the different forms of creating bands for use as straps of all kinds, embellishment to garments, or watch bands!  We’ll meet at our normal place and time, Hoover Church of Christ, 10am, come to the lower level steps on the front right side of the building.  The program will be first, followed by lunch and show-n-tell.   

If you have an inkle loom that you are no longer interested in owning and would like to find an excited new owner, this may be your chance!!  Please feel free to bring any loom that needs love to sell or give away at the meeting!

Also, the annual Alabama Designer Craftsmen show will be Saturday and Sunday at the Botanical Gardens. Guild members Barbara Mitchell, Ruth Truett, and Janice Weinstein will be showing their work. Former member Jenny Gorman will be coming back to Birmingham to participate.
