Operating as usual
Eric is surprisingly us all with his amazingly clever creations.
A few more pieces of note: Lynn was working on towels, Melanie created a table runner playing with stripes of color. Cathy our newbie was pleased with her first warp, as well she should be, and Denise was working on material for a harp cover in Summer & Winter weave structure. Our Wednesday class always has so much of interest and variety going on! Great fun , learning and weaving by all!
The class demo was set up to show differential shrinkage. We used Wool and Tencel and then gently felted it . You can see the puckering of the yarn that did not shrink.
Gene brought back her fabric finished into these unusual market bags, and shared the pattern with anyone that was interested. So clever! Thanks Gene
Debbie felted her fabric for her scarf, wow what a spectacular piece! We all enjoyed seeing that!
Mary has produced some outstanding fabric again this quarter with the “wing it” project in the Wednesday night class. We can’t wait to see what it will be! Great weaving Mary!
Mary brought in her name draft shawl from last quarter to share after it had been washed and finished! Eric decided to model it for the class!
Look at the fun thing that happens to the colors in this warp when you cross it with a weft! You too can play with color when you come to the Wednesday weaving classes!
Betty made 2 spectacular scarves Ann is modeling them hoping she will get one. Can you see the difference between the two?
The newbie students in the Wednesday classes were excited to see their pieces as they came off the loom! Great job you all!
One of our bashful students created an awesome scarf during our “wing it” session using materials she had on hand, and will further explore the fiber’s properties when she finishes it.
Some beautiful fabric came off the looms this week. Amy is going to make some lovely pillows from this!

A number of our students did name drafts this last quarter. These lovely towels are an example and were done by Denise Hanusek. She took them off the loom when we were not there, but shared her photos with us. I bet you can’t guess what it says!
Two of our members showed off their crimp cloth garments at our meeting yesterday. These garments, made by Kay and Cynthia, were a result of our 3 day workshop with fellow guild member, Dianne Totten. Well done, ladies!
We have a very creative student in the Wednesday night class who is playing with double weave and creating his own unique fabric. He is thinking outside the box and stretching the boundaries! Eric plans to make this part of a triptych wall hanging. It’s fun to see what he’ll come up with next! Great work, Eric.
Congratulations, Camisha finished her warp! It includes some 4 shaft Twill samples, and she played with color interactions. She had enough left to weave the background for a tapestry piece that will be enhanced with Summer-Winter shapes she is weaving for the foreground at home. Creativity is emerging and she is very excited!
Cynthia wove a very unique 4 shaft Twill Sampler. She used 2 colors in her warp so her sampler has a very intriguing quality! .Our Advanced beginners in the CHG Wednesday 100 classes are learning so much! Come join us! Registration for Members is this Sunday. June 18. Registration for nonmembers is next Sunday, June 25.
Deja used her own hand spun and hand dyed yarns for her weft in this lovely delicate wall hanging.
Another beautiful piece from the Wednesday 100 night class!
Two different warps from the day students in the Wednesday classes. The first set of photos shows Betty‘s four shaft Twill sampler. You can see that the 1/3,3/1 sampler is darker on one side than the other. This gives her lots of ideas to choose from for her next projects.
The next set of photos shows Lynn’s series of towels, each slightly different but equally lovely.
Janette Hilton has woven some unique napkins for her sister in Columbia, and is on her way to personally deliver them to her. just one more lovely warp coming off the Wednesday night looms this week.
Another wonderful warp coming off one of the Wednesday night class looms, Amy Braswell created some very unusual, double-sided Placemats they have a light side and a dark side. She thinks she will use the Darkside but they are both equally as elegant. These are her results.
Our new student, Deb wound a warp using 2 colors and ended up creating a color and weave effect as a happy accident with wonderful results. Her Beginner towels are very different and unusual. She also learned a lot about successfully repairing a knot in the middle of her warp..
A warp talking to the weaver!! Many wonderful possibilities! Another wonderful warp produced in the Wednesday night class. It has a hidden message in the name draft!
Ann weaving to the very last inch of Helen Johnson‘s warp as a gift to her since she is leaving and moving away. These are the towels that came off that warp.
All good things….
Both the intro and the intermediate students had their last class today. The projects coming off the loom were wonderful. I am really proud of all the students, they worked so hard this session. We have a few weeks of break before our next floor loom session starts. Member registration for the next session of classes will open on June 25 and registration will open to the public the following week. We have floor loom classes on Wednesday and on Saturday.
Have you seen "Transformation: Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild" at The Hudgens yet? It is simply one of the coolest exhibits you will see this year! Every piece of art has been handwoven with thread. You will definitely find yourself saying "how did they do this?" You can even vote for your favorite pieces in the exhibit! The exhibit runs through July 15th. Come check it out!
Day three of our Crimp, Create, and Make workshop with Dianne Totten was all about designing and starting to make our crimp cloth garments. Students brought in the handwoven crimp cloth that they created following the first part of the workshop back in April. We discussed techniques, did some fitting, and got down to sewing. Photos of finished garments yet to come!
Overshot remains a favorite structure. Not every student had the opportunity to try it last quarter so Colleen is doing her samples this quarter and loving the results!
