Minutes of the Guild meeting Festival, A.S. XL
Ragnhildr (was morag), Marienna, Fina, Tyg, Gwen from Stowe, Teffania, Marit. Apologies Mathilde, Contarina.
The proposed Guild project of the banner was well received. More details
to come closer to the day. The gold base will be felted in one piece, with a
blue and a red piece felted separately then cutout into the shapes and laid
into the base and felted in. Lots of time sitting down running our feet
over the rolled up piece in the bamboo blind.
Tyg has stepped up to be the Warden in Stowe-on-the-Wowld. Welcome and
thanks for being a Minister for Enthusiasm.
after wideranging discussison (including perceived
standards, group projects, individual items etc), it was decided that the
Guild would hold a Gift Box of any little or medium item members wished to
donate and it would be offered to the outgoing Royalty for them to choose an
item each. Items could be a spun hank, a spuna dn dyed skein, a pair of
knitted gloves, lengths of cording - whatever the members wish to donate.
Guild Day for ASXLI
Poiltarchopolis Lady Leonie de Grey 16-17 September 2006. She's trying to get a few different styles of tablet weaving looms, and Tyg passed on that a needlepoint tapestry frame stand is quite stable
and useful. She'll also bring her portable tapestry loom and Ragnhildr will
see about getting an AAF warp weighted loom there too. It would be good to
have a Fibre Guild stream of classes, and Ragnhildr will liaise with Leonie
Mistress Marienna shared her tablet strengthened sewing edges and the
tiny tablet she uses.
Mistress Acacia donated a lovely little Roman spindle whorl to be a prize
for a challenge run by the Guild. Tit was suggested the Fleece to Finished
could run again next year and the whorl could be a perpetual trophy for it.
Agreed. This year's challenge had seven people pick up fleece. Teffania
noted it was a pity that people who don't spin nor felt were missing out -
it was decided next year's challenge will be a choice of fleece, fleece and
some spun thread (singles), or same weight spun singles.
The most recent Guild Meeting was at Rowany Festival, A.S. XXXVIII
