Picnic Project 2019-2020


Make It Work

After a number of years of a somewhat lax approach to our annual “Picnic Project”, our Program committee this year has come up with an idea that will give members all year to work on. Time to get back to a solid project we hope everyone will have fun with.

AND, the basics you will work with are ready for distribution at the September “Swap “N Sell” meeting. What we have are 12 different colors of 5/2 [easy to weave] perle cotton from Valley Yarns. Everyone will pick three, different color, 2oz. skeins - in blind picks! Then you get to figure out how to “Make It Work”.

Each skein has approximately 240 yards, so the three colors you get are a “start” You can add whatever you like, and weave whatever you like, in any structure you want. But you must use all three colors, and not just one thread of each! So if you get orange, pink and lime green - you need to figure out a way to “Make It Work”. 

Come to our very casual September meeting and get started on your fun project.
