Upcoming Guild Meetings and Important Dates
April 9, 2015
Triangle Weaving — Loom and Process
South Valley Unitarian Church, 6876 South Highland Drive
At our April Guild meeting, Julie Schwartz will teach us how to weave using a triangle loom—a wonderful simple loom technique that can be used to create many wonderful types of weaving. Julie will show us how to make a simple triangle loom, how to warp it, how to weave on it, and she will share some of the beautiful things you can make with it.
Triangle weaving is a portable, self-contained type of weaving that is often used to create triangle shawls and ponchos.
Julie Schwartz is a long-time member of our Guild, who has served as president of the Guild, who donated the linen that Jeanette shared with us, and who has done a lot of triangle weaving. Triangle weaving is Julie’s medium of choice, and she has pushed the boundaries of what can be done with this type of weaving. This meeting will be a great opportunity to learn about this great technique!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
