January 2023

Our January meeting will be on Friday, January 20, with a presentation by Robin Lynde of Meridian Jacobs. meridianjacobs.com.

We have a potential workshop scheduled for April 12-13, Wednesday and Thursday, on Weaving with Supplemental Warps. However, we need to know ahead of time to confirm this workshop as the presenter is traveling from Montana and will be giving workshops for two other guilds in California. If we have a workshop she likely will fly in and out via Oakland or SFO. If not, she will be making reservations to fly to Sacramento. So–if you are interested please bring a check to our meeting on January 20. The cost is $125 for two days, including handouts. For details see: Weaving with Supplemental Warps

October 2022

We are getting in full swing for the coming year, 2022-23. In September we had our informal gathering and stash sale. Starting this month we resume meetings at the Walnut Creek library branch on Oak Grove.

Meetings have been scheduled through January for the third Friday of the month at the library and will likely include a zoom session for those unable to attend in person.

We welcome ideas for programs for the coming year, and continue to encourage new members and guests.

Summer 2022

We break for the summer, returning to meeting monthly in September. Our first meeting will be September 16, 2022. The following Saturday, September 17, our study group will meet from 10:00 AM – 12:00 noon at Maureen’s home in Walnut Creek. See: https://diabloweavers.org/study-group/

In September, we will have an informal gathering and sharing of summer adventures as well as have our annual stash sale of fiber related items, with a portion of the sale going to the guild. Please bring your dues to the September meeting. See Programs page for details: https://diabloweavers.org/programs/
