Beachwood Library Show Takedown

From Patty Hridel:

Please note date and time change!

The Beachwood Library has us scheduled to take down the show on Wednesday, June 28th, from 5:30-9:00 pm. This is two days earlier than we had on our schedule. So everyone needs to come to the library at those hours on Wednesday to gather their items for the end of the show.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Drawloom class opportunity

An opportunity to take the Vavstuga drawloom class has made itself available to me, and I will be taking the class the week of June 3rd. Susan Conover tells me that they have one more opening for this week; would any of you like to join me? She told me that for this class it is not necessary to have taken the Vavstuga Basics class – that if you are an “experienced weaver” you can also register.

This is the only Drawloom class in the country with 6-7 different drawlooms to play on, and the class is very different from the Basics. No loom dressing! Just sit and play all day! Plus good meals and weaverly camaraderie! Here is the websitePlease contact Vavstuga directly to register.

I will already be driving to MA – it would be fun to have a car mate! If you choose to take the class and want a ride, you can e-mail me at ncurtiss@truthforlife.org or call me at 330.995.3811. I would need to know by Friday, May 31st so that we could make plans.  Susan said that if she doesn’t hear from any of the Ohio contingent, she will be posting the opening next week (5/13) on Monday or Tuesday to the Complex Weavers Group and to other weaving boards.  I hope you can join me!
