January 13th Guild meeting

January 13th   ~ Guild Meeting ~ We will be watching the recently released DVD from Laura Fry:
"The Efficient Weaver".  Production weaver Laura Fry shares her weaving methods in this DVD so you can also weave more efficiently and make the most of your weaving time. 
Laura discusses the ergonomics of sitting and weaving posture; efficient warping, threading and maintaining correct and consistent tension for cloth and good selvedges.
This will be a good discussion starter for both beginners and master weavers, to compare Laura's suggestions to what we practice while we sit at our looms.
