Pickup and May Delights

Our Guild was delighted to have Alison Irwin as our guest speaker in April.  She had examples of various types of 'pickup' weave structures  as well as amazing 'paper' weaving.

Several members attended an afternoon workshop during which Alison taught 'Mock' Satin Damask on 4-shaft looms.  A great afternoon and there are a few 'works in progress' of the samplers.  We look forward to the seeing finished projects in the future.

Members are busy getting ready for our annual Joint Meeting with the Victoria Guild (VHGWS), during which we will unveil items from the "Duds to Diamonds" challenge.   As well as preparing for various Studio Tours and Arts Shows on the Saanich Peninsula.

In the meantime we had our monthly 'Show & Tell" for May.  Here are a few delights from that meeting.
