STUDY GROUP 2019 – 2020
It took very little time for Study Group to find a topic for 2019-2020 to weave and learn when we met at Jessie’s house in May. We enthusiastically decided on “Weave a Pictorial! “ And what a variety of structures or methods we discussed.
Here are some of the ideas for how to weave a pictorial.
Split Shed Biederwand
We offer very few restrictions, just weave something, in your choice of structures that has a picture quality to it. A few years ago, we took a survey of the people who came to our show at the Beachwood Library and the favorite piece was Nancy’s tapestry—a pictorial. So, this exercise may produce some new energy to our shows this year.
Our first Study Group gathering will be at Patty’s house, 10 am, October 3, 2019. Please come prepared to sign up for hosting or presenting for the year. Please check the address on our Guild roster.
Have fun and weave on!
Sturdy antique rug loom looking for a loving home or community historical society setting. This has been in our family for over 75 years.
This loom is very solid, and has all parts. Looks to be circa 1900? Special features include:
Original wire heddles and reed
Solid iron ratchet and pawl for both the warp and cloth beams Counterbalance action with chain support of the shafts
Spring return action on the beater
Sectional warp beam
Large post and beam construction
Floor footprint approx. 4’x6’
The loom just needs some TLC and minor support bracing repair, but it’s all around solid. No bench included, but the current owner has a basket with original rag shuttles to go with the loom.
For pickup only, no shipping available. This loom is located in Madison—Lake County, Ohio.

Our long time member and weaving friend has passed. Elly Rose died today.
It saddens us that she will no longer be with us for our gatherings and lending her special comraderie.
There are no immediate arrangements. A celebration close to her autumn birthday is being arranged.

We have a field trip planned for April 18th to the Finnish Heritage Museum in Fairport Harbor. We will have a private tour of the textiles, led by Rebecca Steinbeck. I hope you will join us and connect with others to carpool.
Please e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to join us for lunch, which will be at 11:00 at Fairport Family Restaurant, 212 High St. (walking distance to the museum). Hopefully we can have a quick meeting, eat and socialize before heading over to the museum. I just need to get a head count so I can call the restaurant to reserve space for us, so don’t forget to let me know you are attending.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing you. Hoping for warm weather! Sheri
