EGLFC 2017 is at Risk

Volunteers make our beloved regional fiber conference happen. Unfortunately,
volunteers have not stepped forward to fill crucial roles for the 2017 event.
Good teachers and venues book far in advance. Unless a committee begins work
soon, there will be no conference.

EGLFC 2017 has the treasury to bring in top-notch instructors, but so far no
program chairs to select them or treasurer to pay them. It has volunteers for
important jobs such as registrar and website, but so far no person willing to
coordinate them all.

If you value our regional conference — big enough to bring in excellent
teachers yet small enough to get to know them — please consider what you are
willing to do to help it continue. To volunteer or ask any questions you may
have, please contact 2015 chair Peg Houseman at 716-648-2987 or
peghouse54@gmail.com. Thank you!

April meeting is Thursday, April 21 and Carol James workshop update

Join us on Thursday April 21 for the April meeting.  Brown bag lunch and social time starts at 11:30. The meeting is at 12:30. Our program is a trip to the nearby CWG library annex. Duplicate materials will be available.

Church of the Saviour, 2537 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118 in the new meeting room.

Two places are still available for the Carol James finger weaving workshop in May.  It is Friday, May 20.  Our May Thursday, May 19th meeting will be her lecture program about sprang.

Please join Cuyahoga Weavers Guild for

Finger Weaving Workshop with Carol James

Friday, May 20, 9AM to 4PM

Calvary Hall, Church of the Savior

2537 Lee Rd, Cleveland Heights, OH 44118

This one-day weaving class introduces you to the basic method. Focus is on the finger movements that create the braid, what the top ten mistakes look like, how to fix them, and how to avoid them in the first place. You begin with an already prepared warp. Once you worked it into a strap, Carol will show you how to finish and how to begin again. Prospective participants are invited to look for her YouTube videos on the subject.

Her brochure for her workshops can be found at: Carol James Workshop Brochure

Her Facebook page is:

Carol will bring all materials. A little bit of yarn goes a long way in this. If you want you can bring some sock yarn, and she will help you to set up a neck scarf.
