Thursday October 10, 2013 Program Night

mangleTool Time!

October’s meeting will be all hands on as we examine everyone’s tools for weaving, spinning and whatever other handwork you do. Have you collected some interesting pieces, or maybe inherited tools that work as well now as they did generations ago.  I have hard time resisting my urge to buy old tools.  I am sure everyone will have something to contribute to “tool time”. Old books on our craft are welcome too, along with sharing those precious memories.

Everyone is encouraged to bring their favorite tools with a story.  These might be unusual, or antique, handmade, or repurposed.

Thursday, October 24  Project Night,  Simple woodworking to create tools for weaving and spinning inspired by “Tool Time”,  for example, making a rigid heddle for band weaving or stick shuttles.
