3-Crayon Colour Challenge – Kathy T.

Kathy T has completed her challenge as well, and is proud to say she didn’t have  to purchase any additional fibre for it! Three cheers for a well stocked stash!!

“the overall majority for warp and weft was cotton, mostly
2/8, but also 5/2 mercerized and a similar sized cotton slub…
I added about a cm of white wool bouclé in the middle of the warp, and I
strand of the same wool bouclé went into all weft bundles.
The weft bundles were made up of a 8 single strands of the above different
yarns and colours, hand wrapped carefully onto a shuttle…”

It looks great Kathy and the brushing after the finishing  gave it a fabulous finish. Well done.


3-Crayon Colour Challenge – Leslie A.

Leslie A. has decided to  step out of the comfort zone and try tablet weaving for her project. Inspired by John Mullarkey’s “Tablet weaving made easy” . Two of the three colours are on hand and the the third is hopefully  on order soon.

Update – the finished project was on display at the Chilliwack Fair. It was originally planned as a guitar strap but ended up as a belt as it wasn’t quite wide enough for a strap.



3-Crayon Colour Challenge – Jenny O.

This year our Guild is challenging  our members to create an item using 3 colours drawn from a large bag of crayons! The project must contain at least 60% of the colours chosen.  As there were two- sixty four boxes and a  twenty-four box of crayons emptied into the  target bag – the colour combinations were amazing. So, as time goes by, we will update the projects by our members.

Jenny O.  chose these wonderful colours. Jenny plans to weave a scarf with her colour choices.

Here we have Jenny’s completed scarf and it is lovely!
