Overshot Workshop Very Successful

Just picture it - 7 eager weavers working on seven different overshot patterns under the guidance of Master Weaver, Gudrun W.  The workshop was excellent although challenging.  Gudrun had selected different patterns for each of the participants.  Saturday was spent warping and threading the looms and on Sunday weaving began in earnest.  The patterns are quite lovely and participants look forward to sharing their experiences at the next Guild Meeting.  Many folks did not have time to complete samples of all of the patterns and are planning to gather on Monday afternoon April 2nd at Fibres Unlimited to swap looms and add samples to their collection.  Thanks to Gudrun for sharing her vast knowledge and experience and to Elvi for finding us a space to work in at the mall!  You can see a photo of the participants on the right hand side of your screen.
