50 Mile Coat Project
Etobicoke Handweavers & Spinners

50 Mile Coat detail

EHS Guild members worked on an art installation in the gallery of  the Neilson Park Creative Centre, making The 50 Mile Coat from raw fibre to finished product. All materials and skill came from within 50 miles (yes, even the buttons and thread) and the public was able to watch the multiple processes and skill sets that were required.

Kay Faulkner Workshop a Great Success

This 2-day workshop, entitled East Meets West - A Sampler, had us examining traditional textiles produced on backstrap looms, and then learning the techniques which Kay has developed for producing those same effects on a shaft loom.

The workshop was so popular that we ran it twice on two consecutive weekends in August. Thank you to Kay for a wonderful and inspiring workshop and to Jette's for her generosity in sharing her good friend during a short one week visit to Canada. (Some photos from the workshop will follow)

LibraryThing has come to Huronia Handweavers

Our book list has not disappeared - it has just moved! Thanks to the hard work of Carolyn Houlden and Marilyn Begley, the whole list has been transferred into LibraryThing at http://www.librarything.com/catalog/hhlibrary This program makes additions and deletions easy and fast, and allows you to search titles and find more information about the books by tying in to other data bases.
