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.

Peruvian Textiles Travels

Tapestry by Peruvian artist Maximo Laura

Peruvian collection
Brenda Nicolson, from the Victoria Hand Weavers and Spinners Guild gave a wonderful talk on her travels in Peru.  Brenda was there for 21 days and took part in four different textile workshops. She brought back weavings, yarn, carved gourds, tapestries, felted hats, etc to show us and her slide show gave us a real feel for that part of the world.  Thanks Brenda!
