We had a great day! Lots of beautiful colors! Time spent with friends on a beautiful day at Louise Hamilton‘s home.
For many years Spin Off magazine and company held a spinners retreat called SOAR (Spin Off Autumn Retreat) Of course with Covid it was canceled for a few years). This year they were able to have one.
With weaving, the possibilities really are endless. Whether it’s discovering new methods on a rigid heddle or testing out the complications of a 12-shaft loom, your imagination is the only limitation.
For those, like Jordan who would rather avoid the challenge of a complicated pattern, a simple 4-shaft twill is plenty challenging. This point draft is based on a simple repeat in both the threading and the weaving. Simple can still make a statement, though.
Stay tuned for the finished product.
We have Instagram! For many members, social media isn’t something we spend a lot of time with, but we understand that in times when people are unable to come to us to see our work, we have to find ways to go out and promote our craft.
Follow us @chilliwackspinnersandweavers and if you’re a member, send photos of your projects to Jordan to have your work posted.
The weather cooperated perfectly for our annual Dye Day hosted by Louise H. A rainbow could be found in the dye pots and the ladies with their wheels found under the shade of a big maple tree.
