What we Wove!

Members brought in many items that they have woven through out the years to share with the group.






March Guild Meeting

Crystal W shared with the Eastside Handweavers a woven blanket that has been in her family for over 120 years. This blanket was displayed at the Smithsonian 42 years ago. Crystal shared the history of the blanket and the story that went along with its rich history.

February Guild Meeting

Our February meeting will be held on Monday, February 26, 2018.  Due to President's day we will be meeting on the fourth Monday instead of the third Monday.  Please mark your calendars!

Our program this month will be a hands on project.  We will be making a necklace.

The only thing you will need to bring is a box to put your necklace in to take home.  An old jewelry box will work the best, with a piece of cotton or paper toweling in the bottom to protect your piece as you travel home.


Ezilla

What is Ezilla?

Ezilla is an event designed to increase knowledge and awareness of handspinning, crocheting, or knitting starting on St Distaff Day!

Why Ezilla?

Spinning and Weaving Week has been a long-standing tradition in the spinning and weaving community. The Eastside Handweavers Guild wanted to create an event in which spinners, crocheters, and knitters of all skill levels could participate. Ezilla is first and foremost a celebration of fiber. The competition is designed to motivate everyone to learn new skills, take risks, and spin, crochet or knit their hearts out.
