September 9, 2017 – Susan Rockwell & Panel
Whether an old or new member please come help us celebrate this special birthday of the Vermont Weavers Guild. There will be a panel of
several people with a display of photos, newspaper articles and guild memorabilia. The panel will cover a time line of Art and Crafts
in Vermont, a search of newspaper records of the guild, the VWG association with NEWS and hearing from our special guests. Special guests
will be two of our four Honorary Members, Betty Atwood and Edith House who are both distinguished weavers and have been mentors to many
experienced and new weavers over the past almost 70 years. They both are truly a “Weaver’s weaver” which means they have both taught
weaving and been mentors to all weavers. Both have held many offices in our guild.
Betty joined the guild in 1951 and has a keen memory of her early days in the guild, woven our award ribbons for years and is still
running her weaving studio with students in Florence, VT. Betty is a past President of the New England Weavers Seminar (NEWS)*.
She taught in the Weaving Department of UVM for many years and is an accomplished weaver still weaving and mentoring. Edith House is
not only an Honorary Member of our guild but also an Honorary Member of the Weavers Guild of Boston. She has taught throughout New
England and is a designated “Weaver of Distinction” at the NEWS based on her many award-winning shaft-switch rugs. Edith joined the
guild in the 1970s and first learned to weave on an inkle loom. Edith received her Master Weavers rating from the Handweavers Guild
of America in 1988. Please come and share your photos, newspaper articles and experience with the guild as well. Everyone except the
Honored Guests are requested to bring a potluck so that we can get to know all members of our wonderful guild better.
