|Family Day, weaving demonstration|
The weavers in the group were very busy over the past month so that we had a lot to show and tell about at our May meeting.
The red scarf in tencil is a simple weave structure, a point twill, but the threading has been set up to create a double border that is repeated in the treadling. This extra design detail creates something truly special.

The lovely shawl in natural shades of wool was woven on a rigid heddle loom proving that you don't need a lot of technology to make something beautiful.
The Qualicum Weavers and Spinners suspends meetings from June until September as many members are busy or away over the summer. But, we are still very active especially this year with the ANWG conference. If you plan on attending the ANWG conference in Victoria at the end of June look for our booth.
We will be at the Art in Action event in Qualicum Beach on July 22nd and if you visit the Qualicum Beach Museum this summer look for our spinning and weaving demonstration. We will also be at Children's Day at the museum on August 19th and at the Lighthouse Fall Fair in Bowser. More public events are planned for September. Maybe we'll see you at one of these events.
