Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild

This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

Damascus Fiber School

November 4th- 8th 2011


Just weaving a head, a simple, complex, naive, sophisticated workshop with much potential and endless possible variations.
A long history of over 3000 years, just weaving a head has opportunities
for weavers with a wide range of skills, from basic shape making images
(that can be very powerful!) to handling a portrait in a tonal range in a variety of techniques that can be very enriching.
We shall be using a wide range of slides to show the diversity of possibilities.
We shall provide materials and equipment (copper looms & bobbins for
class use) and all warp and weft. Students
would be encouraged to bring their own copper frame looms if they have
them and bobbins, so that any unfinished tapestries can be completed at
home. $475.00 includes all materials and a big mid day meal.
Host homes may be available $100.00 deposit returned if you need to cancel until October 10th 2011.
Archie and Susan will be driving out from up state NY and will leave around the 15th of October to make their way here by car and trailer.
