I was gifted with a large amount of single spun linen. (Thank you Julie) It is beautiful and I want to share it with my friends.
This linen is a natural color of brown. The plan is to wind it into 3 yard warps of 100 threads. There will be three base colors provided, red, yellow, and blue. Bring the dyes you would love to use to change the color from brown to anything. But if you want to bring your own dyes, Procion type dyes are recommended. The format is similar to the Kathrin Weber workshop we did a few years ago. Those who were there will remember how much fun it was, and those who missed it will learn a new and simple technique for painting warps.
If you do not want to dye linen, bring any fiber you want to dye. One of the fun things that some people did at the Kathrin Weber’s workshop was to bring fabric to place under the warp threads to absorb the runoff colors.
Please RSVP Jeanette or Sonya if you are planning to attend and want a warp. We need to know how much linen to wind. The email for Jeanette is email@example.com and Sonya’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org
The weaving guild is providing water and soda. Please bring a chair for yourself and your favorite food dish to share.
Driving directions will be
included in the newsletter.

August President's Message.
The Board met this summer and put our heads together to come up with a wonderful plan for our year’s meetings and workshops and show.
Starting out In September: Jeannette has a fun dye party lined up at her house on the second Saturday, September 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. See her article in this newsletter describing what will happen, directions, etc.
In October we are very fortunate to have Bonnie Tarses come to teach us her “Color Horoscope Weaving: The Ultimate Color Gamp” workshop on October 16, 17, and 18. Please see Kathleen McMaster’s article and sign-up sheet for further information on the workshop.
We also have a Guild show in January 2015! Jo Stohlhand and Susan Hainsworth have been busily at work planning for this upcoming, not-to-be missed event. It is titled: “Inspired Fiber Art: Contemporary Fiber Art Inspired by Traditional Textiles.”
In February, we are planning a workshop with Joanne Hall. Beth Myrer is the chair of that event. Look to future newsletters for more information about it.
It’s September, and dues are due: $30 per year! Send your dues to Kira Masnica at 1042 Ft. Union Blvd., #138; Midvale, UT 84047.
