NHWG Library
The NHWG Library is a fantastic resource available to all members.  Thanks to the great work of Librarian Joan Warren and her small band of helpers (see at left, helping with take in and checkout), we can browse and check out books, videos and samples from the large collection before and after classes at every meeting. The collection is housed on the first floor of the yellow building as you enter Kimball-Jenkins.

Morning Workshops


“OUGHT O,WEAVING O’S”, WEAVING CIRCLES PLAIN AND FANCY

Arlene Ilgenfritz stepped in for Barbara Herbster's second class on weaving circular as opposed to verticals, horizontals or diagonals.  Class members brought in their "homework" to discuss.

A full class of interested beginners made for a lot of spinning wheels and drop spindles in this beginner's spinning class taught by Lisa Davy.

REP AND BOOKS, BAGS AND BOXES

Workshop leader and afternoon speaker Lucienne Coifman introduced her class to using Rep weave for many smaller purposes we often overlook in our path to large, square weaving pieces like blankets and scarves.  In the afternoon session, Lucienne talked of her 30-year journey exploring Rep weave.
