MANY THANKS to all those who have joined the service project. If you were not at the Zoom meeting on Monday, please consider joining us!! Guild members are creating 1, 2, 4 or more items for the project. Everyone in the guild is invited to participate, but of course there is no obligation.
Our guild will donate 3 dozen or so handwoven items (dish towels or pot holders) to the Tri-City Meals on Wheels organization. Our donations will be part of a "holiday care package" that Meals on Wheels will put together in December. The care packages will go to house-bound residents in the Berkeley area. Colleen at Meals on Wheels has said that our donations "will be deeply appreciated."
Donations are due at my house by Friday, December 4th. I'll leave a box on my front porch for donations. I will add tags with guild information to each item and I will deliver them to Meals on Wheels.
Need ideas? Maybe you have your favorite dish towel or pot holder pattern. If not, I've attached a few ideas. Koko is going to make pot holders and suggested a pattern that I've attached. Vicky is going to do shibori dish towels and I'll send some information about that in a second email.
Questions? Please let me know.

Here is some shibori information from Vicky.
There is a simple(but effective!) Indigo Dye Kit that dharmatrading.com sells for $8.95, plus shipping.
I have attached the basic suggestions that come with the kit.
For stitched Shibori, go to averbforkeepingwarm.com for more examples.
Invitation from Redwood Guild of Fiber Arts
Dear Fellow Guild Members,
It is a very challenging time for all our guilds. Our meetings have changed and we are trying to find new ways to connect. In the spirit of "all being in this together" Redwood Guild Of Fiber Arts would like to reach out and invite members of your guild to share our upcoming program lecture with Robin Spady, Gizmos & Gadgets for Better Weaving, on November 4 from 11:00am to 12:00pm.
The event will be held on Zoom and guests must be familiar with using the Zoom program for meetings. There will be a limited number of spots available (~30) based on our zoom license so it will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Interested individuals should send an email request to our Membership Chair -Ellen LaBruce (email@example.com) to receive an invitation to the event.
While this is not the same as meeting in person we still want to try to share with other fiber artists in our area.
