A message from the Guild President
Welcome to the Vermont Weavers Guild website! Iím approaching the end of my 2 years as President of this guild. Wow! Time really flies by.
All I can say is that it has been an interesting experience. Ending the term with our guild show is, I think, a great way to end a term Ė
seeing all the beautiful work done by my fellow guild members on display in one location is something I look forward to. Our bi-annual show
starts on May 13th at 1 PM. Iím excited for several reasons: 1) our theme for this show is the guildís 70th anniversary. I think itís a
wonderful achievement that the guild has been around that long! 2) that the public gets to see these beautiful weavings from our talented
guild members and 3) every show gives me an opportunity to receive constructive comments on my work which causes me to challenge myself to
produce/learn something different. I hope all of you (new weavers and long-term members and everyone in between) will consider entering a
piece of weaving or at least to come to the show to support your fellow weavers.
Thanks to all of you who signed up for the workshops this year (9/2016 through 4/2017). The ones I participated in I really enjoyed and
learned new things and I hope you did too. Be sure to let the program committee know what you would like to have for future programs.
I encourage everyone to feel free to ask questions regarding anything to do with weaving. Iím finally getting my courage to do so after
five years of being a guild member and 15 plus years as a weaver. I think one reason why I hesitated to ask was since Iíve been weaving
for this long I should know everything about weaving or at least be able to figure out how to do something. Right? Wrong!!! There
are several ways to do this: ask the question(s) via the yahoo group, check out the list of members and find members who live near you
and contact them directly, or talk with people at the guild meetings or at the business meeting. We have a great guild and all of us are willing to help.
I hope to see all of you soon,
Betty Mitchell, Guild President
