Each year, the Guild celebrates the achievements and talents of its members at the annual May Meeting. In 2016, the Weavers' Guild of Boston members had much to celebrate. Here are the highlights (shown in the slide show below):
The Fashion Show put the spotlight on the fascinating variety of member interests and creations. Eleven members displayed 17 fabulous works. Photos of some of these creations are in the slide show.
The Guild honored members who have made notable contributions to the Guild and to the fiber field. 2016 recpients are:
The Guild Challenge is always fun. This year was no different: the Challenge was "Plain Weave." Guild members rose to the challenge, creating plain weave articles that are anything but plain. Photos of the display are included in the slide show.
All the way from Hawaii, Shannon Mathers submitted a successful body of work and became the latest Guild member to earn an Apprentice Rating. Photos of Shannon's beautiful work are included in the slide show.
Show and Tell
During the year, members bring the current work to 'show and tell' at each meeting. This year, some members brought their work back to the May Meeting; and Guild-affiliated Study Groups displayed the results of their study. We were able to include photos of some of this work in the slide show.
