I decided to join the weaving guild that the woman who helped me warp the Wolf Pup at the library belongs to. It’s not the Greater Baltimore one which I still have mixed feelings about but one that is actually meets closer to Baltimore! It’s up on Bel Air, Maryland. They do weekly informal weaving zooms on Mondays, some learning zooms and then have a hybrid in person meeting once a month outside of summer. The dues were only $20 so really no downside.
I attended my first zoom today! They all seem very friendly and enthusiastic. It was interesting to hear them all talk about weaving. A lot of them said they really liked planning more than actually weaving which I thought was interesting. I’m not an unfinished project person.
I heard some stories about how rainy and muddy it was at Maryland Sheep & Wool this year but that sales were good. I bet everyone was desperate to get out and shop in person!
Later this month they are having their last in-person hybrid meeting until the fall and I’m going to attend. Apparently it will also be an auction so I might be able to pick up some supplies the women are donating from their stash.
I can’t really be on camera when Matt’s working but I could see everyone else. It will be nice to see them in person soon. I made a couple bookmarks during the zoom. I find them very satisfying to weave.
