The next meeting of the Nashoba Valley Weavers’ Guild will be held at the Fiber Loft on Tuesday, October 27th. Come at 7 to socialize, check out selected library items and for refreshments. The meeting will begin at 7:30 pm.
Weaving Design Poker!
Have you ever needed inspiration in your weaving, or maybe just a little nudge in a different direction? Have you ever wanted to just let your imagination run wild when planning a weaving project? Do you have trouble choosing WHICH of your many great ideas you should implement next? Well do we have a game for you!
At the next regular NVWG meeting on Tuesday 27 October, Penny Lacroix will be dealing. Dealing cards, that is. We’ll be playing a variant of 5-Card Draw that will get everyone thinking warps and wefts, triads and neutrals, blocks and twills. When you just have to describe it (not actually weave it), your weaving juices will flow freely. Your designs will be limited only by your own imagination! This is for weavers at all levels, from very beginner through advanced.
Once we’ve all warmed up our imaginations, we’ll deal a final hand to generate challenges. By the end of the evening, everyone will have a set of cards that will inspire them to weave something at their own level for our 2015-16 Guild Challenge. The woven products and their stories will be brought to the June 2016 potluck to share with everyone.
If you would like to participate in the Guild Challenge but can’t make it to the October meeting, please contact Penny (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) and she’ll make sure you get some cards appropriate for your personal weaving challenge.
