End of the Year Guild Meeting and Photos

Last Saturday was the end of the year meeting for the Arizona Desert Weavers and Spinners Guild.  Each group there had a project that they had worked on out on display.  The daytime spinners group had to make a weave a place mat out of their own handspun yarn to match a mug.  My place mat is shown below.  It was maid using cotton 10/2 for the warp and handspun Jacob's that I had plyed with handspun Merino.  You can see a picture of the mug in the second photo.  I just couldn't resist.

Maria was never afraid of making a skein in public.
But then I also had to have this mug too.
I came, I saw, I knitted......
These are the finished products from the daytime spinners group.

These are from the daytime weavers group.  They all had to weave using a block pattern
Here are the county fair winners for spinning, weaving and knitting

This was a seminar that taught how to dye, spin and weave using paper!

This is from a conference in Bisbee Arizona to learn how to weave rugs.

Join your local Guild!

I bought the mugs from an online store called Cafe Press. It's a very dangerous website!
