Study Groups

At the January 19 meeting in Farmington we will be doing our kickoff of the study groups. It is strongly recommended that you be there. If you have not been contacted for your assignment or if you would like to be in a group and have not signed up, here is a list of the contact people for the groups that have formed:

  • Double Weave - Ann Kennedy
  • Deflected Double Weave - Elaine Bakkenson
  • Dyeing - Corey Heisler
  • Weaving for Clothing - Anne Worthington
  • Methods of Measuring a Warp and Dressing a Loom - Kathy Sehnert
  • Overshot - Shirley Haisman

Please refer to your membership list for email addresses and phone numbers. If you do not have access to that, contact me and I will get that info for you.

We will be meeting in our small study groups for a short time during the business meeting. It is really important that for this to work well, we need to get together on this day. So, if you can only make the business meeting, that will be acceptable! If you absolutely can’t come, you are still welcome in the group. But you may run the risk of being chosen as the group’s leader!! (Probably not. Just a motivation for you to be there!) But please contact your group leader if you can not be there. If you were not able to get in touch with the contact person, you can still join your chosen group at the guild meeting.

If you have any questions before our meeting, contact me and I will try to have the answers for you. Hope to see you on January 19.
