Yesterday was the final WNCF/H Guild meeting of the year. In addition to officer elections, this was also when our towel exchange took place. You may recall the waffle weave dishtowels I wove for that. But before I tell you about that, I'd like to backtrack to show you the drive up the mountain to the meeting. Even though it's a little late in the autumn color season, it was still a real treat.
The exchange took place after the business meeting and program.
There were 18 participants. By drawing numbers, we traded for as many towels as we brought. In addition, each participant received a project sheet from each towel weaver.
I was very pleased with the towels I received. They are exactly my colors!
This one is a plain weave with twill weft stripes, woven by Bobby Payne.
And this one is a warp faced compound tabby woven by Lynda Feldman.
This was the first exchange I've participated in. Besides two lovely new towels, I am also delighted to have a project book with so many ideas and samples. Definitely a welcome resource.
