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.

Workshops in Lynden Washington

Hello Fiber Enthusiasts,

Fibers and Beyond 2016 is coming soon, and we are excited about the workshops, exhibits, and the weavers’ sale that will be part of it.  Come visit us in Lynden WA in October at the Jansen Art Center!

Fibers and Beyond 2016 Committee



And here’s information about one of the workshops, especially for those of you who may be thinking about learning to weave or want to know more about rigid heddle weaving!

Rigid Heddle Weaving with Joanne Hall, Saturday, Oct. 15, 9-4:30



The loom and all supplies are provided for this beginning weaving class.  Rigid heddle weaving is easy to learn and fast to weave.  The loom is very portable and affordable.  You will learn to set up the loom and to weave.  In this day-long class you will become a weaver and in the process you will weave a scarf.   You will learn about selecting yarns, putting them on the loom, preparing the yarn for weaving, using shuttles, weaving techniques and finishing techniques.  You will learn enough to weave on your own after the class.

For experienced weavers, there will be a display of more advanced weaving techniques and discussion of pattern weaving using two heddles.

Joanne Hall is a weaver, teacher and author. Joanne started the Elkhorn Mountains Weaving Studio in Montana City, Montana, where she weaves tapestries and teaches weaving classes. 

For this class, registration is $85, and there is a materials fee of $35.


Other classes that still have openings are:
·      Deflected Double Weave with Liz Moncrief
·      3-D Design & Surface Manipulation on Felt with Flora Carlile Kovacs
·      Band Weaving & Back Strap with Joanne Hall
·      Nuno Felted Scarf with Flora Carlile Kovacs

More information about these workshops is on the Jansen’s website, and all registrations are through the Jansen Art Center, at www.jansenartcenter.org/shop
