Today was spent at the Guild House volunteering my time to weave fabric for “Cat Toys”. Our weaving guild sells the cat toys at our annual sale to raise money for the guild. In past years the fabric was woven by guild members demonstrating at the Houston Rodeo. The rodeo changed exhibits this year and did not need weavers and spinners to demonstrate. So weaving for the cat toys would be done on one of two pre-warped looms at the Guild House. The nice thing about weaving this fabric is the freedom to change treadling and yarn colors when so inspired. Since the cat toys are small it’s good to make frequent changes. The loom is set up with an 8 harness twill pattern.
There’s still more warp on the loom, allowing someone else some creative time for a good cause. Does your weaving guild weave items to raise money?
