Visit The Textile Museum online

The Textile Museum at the George Washington University Museum is a tremendous textile resource online.

My introduction to the Textile Museum was their journal. Articles are scholarly and topics are thoroughly researched with extensive references.

The online collections are inspiring. 

There are hours of video presentations available. 

The Textile Museum online is a great resource for textile research and an inspiration for our own fiber work. 'Like' it on Facebook to get their posts added to your feed.

May Guild Meeting, this Saturday!

Heirloom Textiles Show and Tell

Date: May 14th 2022 (we meet on second Saturdays of the month)

Time: 10:00 am 

Hybrid meeting: Hoover Church of Christ Fellowship Hall on the lower level and on Zoom

Do you have an amazing tablecloth that was handed down through your family or an incredible embroidered bedsheet that your great Aunt Rose made? Share your Heirloom fiber works or tools either on Zoom or in person. 

Show us the things that are too big or too fragile to leave the house via Zoom or bring your fiber pieces with a family story if you are joining in person. We will take turns sharing and make sure everyone in the Zoom room and in person gets to participate.

This is our first in-person guild meeting back at Hoover Church of Christ and we are very grateful to them for sharing their facilities with the guild again. We'll be in the large auditorium so there is plenty of room to spread out and lots of air flow. If you haven't attended a guild meeting there, park in the small parking area that faces Lorna Road and walk down the steps to the double metal doors.

This week we will have one door prize for our in-person attendants, and one mail-to-your-door prize for our zoom attendants.
