Study Group

Diablo Weavers Study Group

We are a group of Diablo Weavers Guild members who choose to meet
quarterly to share and discuss a weaving topic. As a group, we select a topic to study. At our meetings we discuss our experiments, successes, and failures. We find that doing a deep show-and-tell session together is very educational and inspiring for weavers of all levels

We have decided to switch our regular meetings to Saturdays from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon. We are hoping that meeting on Saturday will encourage weavers who cannot come to the regular Diablo Weavers Guild meeting to join us in the Study Group.

Our next meeting will be at a date to be announced, possibly in early September. Please text Marueen Miller at 925-451-1118 if you would like more details. Or you can send a message using our Contact form.

Our new topic beginning this month is Crackle weave. For reference, one good source is Robyn’s Spady’s digital magazine, Heddlecraft. Crackle is featured in the July/August 2021 issue.

Reba also gave us a reference to the Ralph Griswold collection on Handweaving.net.

Prospective study group members who are not yet members of the Diablo Weavers Guild are welcome to attend one study group meeting as a visitor.  To continue attending, it will be necessary to join the Guild.
