Weavers’ Challenge 2017-2018
A scarf – with a little help from your friends
Coodinators: Margaret Moone and Sally Rianhard
- Design a draft and plan for a scarf on 4 or 8 shafts.
- Bring or otherwise get it to the November meeting to secretly swap with another member.
- Wind a three and a half yard warp to go with the draft for a width of 5-12 inches, to be sett based on fiber used.
- Get it to the January or February meeting to secretly swap (with a little extra yarn for broken threads etc).
- Weave the scarf. There should be about half a yard for sampling etc. You make up your own tie-up.
- At the Annual Meeting in June, bring in your finished scarf and discover who helped you.
- Please bring it along with its draft and: 3 extra copies of the draft with 3 small samples, if you have them. One for the two friends who helped you and one for a guild notebook.
- We will toss a coin to see whether the weaver of the scarf or the designer of the warp goes home with the scarf.
- 2 shaft drafts could be considered profile drafts or finger-manipulated weaves, to allow for tapestry weavers etc.
- Threading draft could be e-mailed in.
- A sample threading draft could be given with the directions
- It would probably be necessary to define the draft (as twill, overshot, Bronson etc)
