Tea Towel Project update

A personal thank you to those who were able to came out for our celebration. We had a wonderful time moving the loom out into the centre of the East Lions Community Centre and unrolling 17 unique and beautiful Towels. 

We ate cake, drank coffee and talked to live people! We distributed all of the towels to the people that were there for hemming.  

With Diny’s guidance and our collective thoughts and efforts we have reattached the warp and its ready for weavers to finish up.  

Who wants to weave another towel?

As you may know Lynne Salisbury will be moving to British Columbia.  She wove several towels and has taken two towels for hemming. We will miss her!  

A reminder that summer camps are being held at the centre and it is recommended you wear a mask when coming to the centre.  

Be well,

Donna
