Skagit Valley Weavers Guild

Well, the final Lac dyebath is finishing up and the Sticklac is marinating overnight to be put into the dyebaths tomorrow so now is a good time to catch up with the Skagit Valley Weavers Guild. I consider Skagit to be my home guild and it was the first one I joined. This year Vivian and I created the Creative Process Challenge. It was essentially to use the formal 5 step creative process to complete a fiber challenge. I was impressed how many stepped up and completed such a challenging challenge. Not only did they complete it, they all did an incredible job. Monday night's meeting was a potluck and the final results of the challenges were revealed.
The challenges varied greatly and kept all of us interested to the very end of the evening. We had everything ranging from Anthropological research complete with professional publication of the findings(I'm in awe Megan) to Chilcat weaving, dye projects, liturgical weaving, new spinners, rugs, and trips to India, and more. These weavers are a very impressive group all here in the Skagit Valley area. So to the Skagit Valley Weavers Guild I say, Well done! I am terribly impressed and now, proud to be your next president.
Here are a few pictures of not so great quality of the results. Unfortunately overhead florescent lights at night do not make for the best looking pictures. -Renee

Congratulations on your upcoming presidency! I know the guild will benefit. What is the five step creative process?
