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.

Notes:

  • 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)
