Timmy Burton has woven triaxial weave with ribbons. In triaxial weaving the elements are interlaced using 60 degree angles. Two photos are shown on the slider at the bottom of the page. She will demonstrate the technique using ribbon.
Judie Eatough will bring paper strips for you to weave your own sample of this technique.
This technique is also used in baskets.

April President’s Message
I have a couple of matters of business to convey to all of you. First, our Nominating Committee has submitted the candidates for the Guild’s Officers for 2015/16. Please review this list, and if there is someone you feel should still be nominated, please contact Charlene Lind at (801) 375-7532, or email her at email@example.com. We will vote in the new officers at the May meeting, and they will begin their new term this summer.
Also, I have been busy working on updating our Guild’s bylaws, especially concerning the addition and governance of new chapters or branches of our guild because this information was missing. I am asking all of you to read through the Articles of Incorporation, Constitution, and Bylaws carefully. These are posted on the Guild web page. We will be voting on the changes at the May meeting as well.
Have a weaverly Spring!
