President's Message

Wow, 2014 just whizzed by!! It was a busy year last year, with the Fiber Festival and Rebecca Winter and Bonnie Tarses workshops and excellent meeting presenters. Thank you for the efforts of all involved in bringing this group these opportunities to learn and grow as fiber artists. Lucky for us we have more fun and educational events planned in 2015! We will be ringing in the New Year with our Guild show, featuring works inspired by international textiles, which runs from January 15 to March 4, 2015. I hope that everyone is busy finishing up their projects to hang in the show. Joanne Hall will be teaching her Swedish Art Weaves workshop at the end of January. So much to look forward to!
Happy Holidays everyone! Happy New Year!

Weaving is fun!

The Mary Meigs Atwater Weavers Guild was founded in February 1955.
The Newsletter was named the Weaver's Bag.
A stylized frog was used as a logo.
The Guild motto is:
You can't weave well enough alone.

Make many useful items

Fish-face, polliwogs, a frog, Peruvian. MMA, Shuttle Craft Book. Did you ever wonder where the guild logo came from? It is the frog from the Peruvian Fish Pond. This design is ideal for double weave pick up work

Only limited by your imagination

A display from a past Guild show.
Bring your family and friends to see the show.
Show and Tell at the beginning of Guild meetings is a great way to see what others are doing.

Band weaving

The newsletter contains meeting information for the guild. It also includes many things of interest to fiber artists. Do you know -- the Color of the year for 2015? www.pantone.com.
There is a newsletter archive.

Rigid heddle loom

Check books out from the library. Old books, new books, weaving has been around for 20,000 years. We also have some videos and ebooks.
Also you can rent equipment from the guild.

Patterns

Mary Atwater recorded many patterns. She also taught many weavers and was a prolific writer and weaver. She worked as an occupational therapist during World War I. She gave permission for the use of her name as long as we did not become a 'ladies tea society' with fancy refreshments.
