WINTER 2022 STUDY GROUPS

NHWG is hosting three virtual Study Groups that will meet at least once per month for the next three months.  Any member can join these 1-1/2 hour Zoom sessions. You can even join them all if you'd like as they will be on different days.  What are they? A study group is like a continuing Weavers Helping Weavers: we all get together to discuss a particular topic.  Maybe we'll want to do a common small project or maybe just bring our problems and projects to discuss. Whatever works for the group is great!

Zoom links for each group will be sent out to the entire membership so you can pop in often or just once.  We'll also send periodic reminders.   Here's the list:

Tapestry Explorations: January 6th, Thursday, 10am.  Facilitated by Linda Pierson and Sue Farrell.  Beginner or experienced, come learn about tapestry and share your projects.

Garment Construction: January 18th, Tuesday, 10am.  Facilitated by Joanne Mills and Terry Ellen Carter.  Talk about techniques, patterns, supplies, projects, problems and successes.

Ratings: January 27th, Thursday, 10am. Facilitated by Maureen Hoffman and Sybil Shiland.  Learn about the NHWG Ratings program, bring questions to discuss and share your progress.

And a slightly different offering:   OVERSHOT FRIENDSHIP PLACEMATS WORKSHOP SORRY THIS IS FULL

Placemats: January 11th, Tuesday, 10am.  Led by Anne Bridge.  WILL MEET 2X PER MONTH. Limit 8 participants who will weave 8 placemats to share with group members.

Overshot is a magical structure. The first time you weave it you can hardly believe the cloth that grows on your loom. Traditionally used to weave bed coverings, overshot has many beautiful applications in today's world, from useful household textiles to breathtaking works of art. This versatile weave is subject to endless variations.
