Links to the recording of Anne’s presentation and handouts have been sent by email to all members.

DUE TO POTENTIAL ADVERSE WEATHER AND ROADS, THE DECISION HAS BEEN MADE TO MOVE THE JANUARY 16 GUILD MEETING TO ZOOM ONLY.  There will be NO in-person component.  A zoom invitation will be sent out to all guild members.

We will hear from Saori weaver Anne Richmond who makes amazing fabrics and turns them into clothing.

We all love spinning and weaving, but after the placemats, tea towels and coverlets, cutting the fabric and making clothes can feel a little scary. Anne Richmond, a SAORI weaver, will share her experiences making clothes over the past five years, from her first simple vests into major origami constructions. This will be partially pictures and display pieces, and some hands on work exploring how handloom fabric can become comfortable and unique clothes, with minimal wastage. Anne uses the SAORI pattern books, and will bring some to show, but emphasizes that she is not a SAORI teacher. The evening focuses on Anne’s own experience as a weaver and former clothing design student (Sheridan College). She hopes people go away from the session eager to try some ideas out on their own stashes of weaving.
