|Our Guild inkle loom set up to weave Clare took it home to try her hand at weaving on this loom|
We had a better turn out at our meeting than I expected for an August meeting.
* Jeanne brought in a book with many ideas for inkle loom woven items, one she was interested in making was a phone case with strips of woven material. the book is 'Inkle Weaving' by Helen Bress.
*John brought in a Shuttle he made out of Walnut. He is very excited about the Tapestry weaving class we took and is going to try to learn some more this fall with a class at Siever's on Washington Island.
* Clare was knitting a sleeve and she took the guild inkle loom home to try weaving some of the warp we had on the loom. I learned that this stand up inkle loom is also a warping board. So if you need a warping board in the future our guild owns one.

|Carol's hand spun Alpaca and silk yarn from MWC shopping she Navajo ply-ed this yarn to maintain the colors|
Carol attended the Midwest Weavers Conference in St Paul in June and she came across this Alpaca roving with silk slubs in it. She turned it into a skein of yarn that she Navajo Ply-ed to Maintain the color sequence. It really turned out beautiful.
Mary was asked to pose with her tencel top ! since I never pass up a good picture of me, you are getting to see my top woven with tencel and Inlayed squares added for accent.I also brought in my linen bread bags that I just finished weaving with double weave 48 ends per inch. the Pattern is in Handwoven and I thought it would make a nice Christmas gift.
the Ply split key chain was given to me at Midwest as a thank you for modeling another weavers garment.
