March Show and Tell

We had another bounty of Show and Tell at our March meeting.  A lot of it was for our Art Page exchange, which I will cover in another post, but here are some others items that were shared.  Please click on the thumbnails to enlarge.

Ruth’s blanket

Ruth wove this beautiful blanket double-width on her 36″ loom.

Ruth’s blanket detail

Here’s a detail of Ruth’s blanket.   The striped effect comes from the way she sleyed it in the reed.  We’re all curious to see how it looks after it is washed, but she hadn’t had a chance to do that yet.

Mary’s wool

Mary has been dyeing wool and spinning it in these luscious colors.  The shorter skein of yellowy green towards the right is silk.

 Mona’s flags

Mona brought some fabric prayer flags that her Monday Night Creative Group exchanged.  They dyed the fabric and printed it with blocks of their own design.

Valerie’s leaves

Valerie made lots of the beautiful beaded leaves that Heather taught us the technique for in February.

Astrid brought two knitted items, a shawl and also a scarf for her charity project.

Welcome!

Welcome to the website/blog of Seaview Weavers Guild.  We are a small, friendly, weavers guild located in Edmonds, Washington.  We enjoy  exploring all sort of fiber arts, yet remain true to our roots and call ourselves a weavers guild.  But, you don’t have to be a weaver to join us.  Our members also knit, spin, dye, felt, quilt, paint, draw, scrapbook,  make monotypes, etc., etc.  We feel that paper is a fiber, too, and anything involving any fiber falls into our scope of interest.

We’ll use this space to let people know about upcoming meetings, show our work, report on programs we’ve enjoyed, and share information.  We also invite you come join us!  Click on “About” for details.
