2021 Towel Exchange

 
It’s been so long since we’ve been able to do anything together, I thought we should give ourselves the opportunity to have a Guild Weaving Project.

Please plan on weaving (or knitting or crocheting, if you don’t weave) a towel for Show & Share and for swapping at our first in-person meeting. I’m hoping that we can meet in May, or June, or at the very latest, July.

So that we’ll all be on the same foot at the same time, please note the following:

MATERIAL – Cotton, whatever size and color(s) you deem appropriate for your pattern. If you want to include embellishments on your towel, use whatever materials you choose, but remember, towels that are used also have to be washed, and NO ONE likes to wash their towels by hand!

SIZE – ON LOOM – 18-20 inches wide and 27-30 inches long. The length includes the hem, but does not include fringe, should your pattern, or preference, use fringe.

STRUCTURE – Totally up to you

Let’s plan on doing a blind drawing, similar to what we do at our Christmas gift exchanges. We’ll put a number on each towel, and the corresponding number in a bowl. Each person who brings a towel, will draw from the bowl and receive the towel with that number. No one will go home with their own towel, so if you LOVE, LOVE the towel you’re making for the ARWG Weaving Opportunity, you might want to consider making 2 towels, one to swap and one to keep.

Jeff has kindly offered to help anyone with their project planning, materials choice, or loom assistance. He’s even said he has a few table top looms he’s willing to share for the project. You can contact Jeff at warppedweaver@yahoo.com or 660-886-4194.
