Event Details

Green Mountain Weavers & Spinners will start their 2019/2020 monthly programs Wednesday, September 18.  Please join us at 7 p.m. for illustrated talks by long-time members Abbie Hatton and Jacqueline Fowler.  Abbie will present a history of our 40 years of connecting with each other to provide fellowship, learning experiences, and refinement of our skills as fiber artists.  Jacquie will continue our look at traditions in American weaving, with an overview of weaving techniques and patterns used in southern Louisiana (Cajun) and Appalachia.

 

Monthly meetings on the third Wednesday take place at All Saints Episcopal Church Parish Hall, Summer Street (next to Post Office), North Adams. The theme of our October meeting will be “Spindle Spinning,” with a brief history of this first type of spinning, plus several members demonstrating different types of spindle spinning, such as Turkish and Navajo.

 

Other programs planned for the coming year are natural dyeing, kumihimo braiding, finishing techniques, plus workshops and field trips.
