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

November's meeting was packed with Heather's showing how to make felt 'trivots.  Meanwhile, members were madly knitting up hand spun squares for Jacey Bloggs (see next post).

Margo's felt
Crytal's sideways sock
Tina's hat
Kathy's throw
Trudy's knitted vest
Gwen's birds, Margo's felt, Crytal's sideways sock (really, it is knit from the side!), Tina's first object with her first hand spun (soft merino),  Kathy's cotton throw, Trudy, a guest, wore her hand knit vest knitted sideways, Ann wore her fun knit scarf, and Jeanette had her beautiful felted boots.
