Many Hands

The Chilliwack Spinners and Weavers Guild room boasts many pieces of equipment and a floor filled with looms of all shapes, makes, and sizes. Through the winter, most of our looms are warped with group projects. The snow put a major delay on new warps, but with the weather co-operating, we’ve been able to get back at it.

Three pairs of hands were working together to tie on a warp that will become rosepath tea towels. Long-standing members work with new members to pass on this age-old craft. Centuries of combined experience within the Guild membership means that there is usually at least one person on hand to help with nearly any task.

Saturday Sweater

New Spinner – Bev

New at both spinning and knitting, Bev just had to bring her first completed project in to show off. This lovely Saturday Sweater was handmade from fleece to finish by Chilliwack Spinners and Weavers Guild member, Bev Huseby. Even long-time spinners and knitters had to get a close up look at the texture of this lovely piece.
