The Northern Colorado Weavers Guild
The Northern Colorado Weavers Guild sponsored several programs to celebrate National Spinning and Weaving Week last October. Guild members stationed themselves at the front door of the Barnes & Noble bookstore to talk to shoppers, demonstrate skills, and offer coupons that would bring in a donation to the guild when purchases were made. Over 100 names and addresses of children who would like to have the guild send them a handwoven inkle bookmark were submitted. Bookmarks were handed out to children attending the weaving demonstration in the Reader’s Cove bookstore where kids enjoyed pulling the beam, patting the warp threads, and pushing treadles on the floor loom.
