October Minutes

Featured at this meeting was an Introduction and Possibilities of Card Weaving by Jayne Flanagan.  Jayne not only introduced the guild to the mechanics of card weaving but also set up 4 looms which members could try their new found techniques on. Also, as part of the demonstration, Jayne displayed an extensive set of samples showing varied techniques including bands woven in double weave.

The excellent presentation and hands on practice by members did not detract from our regular show and share. Olivia has added some pictures on  the NoBo Facebook pages.

Your scribes Margaret, Terry and Ted

Web Site Updated

I have just updated the web site software to Word Press 4.3.1. While most of the changes relate to security fixes there are some new features using sidebars and short cuts using the the # character to create heading levels avoiding the need to switch from keyboard to mouse.

If any members would like to explore the new features of Word Press 4.3.1 please check the Word Press web site. Any issues following the upgrade please contact me.
