October Guild Meeting – 2023

The speaker for our first meeting of the year will be Kim McBrien Evans –

The topic will be Inclusive Shawls
Your shawls should fit your body, the way you want them to. This can mean adapting a shawl shape to be shallower, deeper, longer or shorter to suit your height and body type.In this class we will look at common shawl shapes and learn how to tweak the shape and size to work better for ourselves. We will also look at YOUR favourite shawl patterns and look at ways to modify them for your needs and desires.
