We have two Hammett looms here at the Bill Rafnel Weavers Barn, both excellent to weave rugs on. Guild member Jill is fond of both the color blue and Pendleton wool selvage, and her rugs go quickly at our Museum events. Guild member Ruth loves texture both in rugs and in the scarves and towels she also weaves, blending patterned yarn in interesting ways. Visit us on Thursdays and Saturdays to see more!

Winding on 10 yards to Bill's AVL loom!

A bit quiet on FB, but we have been creating during the pandemic, sharing our home-created crafts at weekly zoom meetings until our Weavers Barn and Spinners Cottage are open again! We have loved seeing clockwise from top left: Lorrie's felted purses (hope there is a class coming soon!), Marty's goose eye blanket, Elizabeth's krokbragd journey, Kathy's experiential quilts (& we got to tour her studio!), and Jill's adorable woven boxes. We hope to see you all in person soon!

Lovely show and share today! Eileen has MASTERED the art of block weave with a gorgeous rug! Our new member Nikki so impresses us with the crochet projects she is teaching her home school students - we want to sign up for her class! And Susan is channeling Holly Golightly with her knitted scarf from that yarn she cannot pass up. We only wish we had a young George Peppard by our side!

Happy Sunday! This week we're shining a light on a museum power couple. Christine and Ken Sheppard are assets to #agsem in more ways than one. From offsite events, to repairing antique equipment, weaving, fabricating things in the machine shop... they're always happy to volunteer and lend their combined infinite wisdom to visitors, staff, potential new volunteers and members alike. Next time you see them pick their brain, I'm sure you'll learn something new and exciting!
