February 2011

Diablo Weavers Guild meets once a month, September through June.
New members and guests are always welcome.
Meetings are usually on the Third Friday of the month at 10:00 am
at the Thurman Casey Library in Walnut Creek.

February 15 Update:

Due to an emergency, Lynn Harris will not be able to make it to this meeting. We will have a video to show, about Peter Collingwood.

We hope to have Lynn as a speaker sometime in the future. 
Bring you knitting or extra things to share, we will have a casual gathering rather than a formal program at the February meeting.

Lynn Harris on SAORI weaving:
See her website below for details about her work and studio in Berkeley. 

Planning for next October:

An Anita Mayer workshop will be Oct 28, 29, 30, 2011. Friday will be a guild meeting in the morning with the workshop beginning in the afternoon. Workshop cost will be about $140 with a possible lab fee of $30 [depending on the workshop]

These are the workshops Anita offers. Read them over and lets decide which one we want to have next October.


An unconventional workshop for the adventuresome who want to produce clothing rich in texture and color using only the basic skills of knitting and crochet.

[or How to Lose 10lbs. in One Hour]
An introduction to a series of vests, all from one basic pattern, that explores a variety of fabric techniques. The participants will complete a pouch of embellishment techniques and draft vest patterns to size.

Create a unique scarf by meshing pieces of fabric between organza-net as you explore fabric painting, quilting and beading.

Compile an extensive reference notebook of simple yet dramatic ways to individualize cloth using mires, creative embroidery, beads and braids.
