January 2019 Guild Open Day and Talk

Stephanie HoyleChat, other reports, Reports0 Comments

A very popular event, with an attendance of 37. Most people were spinning, but there were a few weavers, and a couple of knitters as well. We had a very interesting talk from Christina Chisholm, a former Highland Guild member, who is Chair of the Editorial Committee for the Journal of the Association of Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers. We were all very impressed to learn that the vast majority of the work done by the Association is done by volunteers, including the commissioning, selection and editing of material for the Journal, and the organisation of the Conference, Summer School and Exhibition. We were also very impressed with Christina’s folders of samples for her Certificate of Achievement in Weaving, for which she got a well deserved Distinction.

Some photos of the event (more to come):
