November, 2020

November’s meeting was held at Trinity Lutheran Church (120 Sunset drive in Butler) just past the Clearview Mall. Project day was there also.

The program was a zoom presentation by Pittsburgh fiber artist and author Deb Brandon. Her presentation is available for guild members to stream until November 27, if you did not receive a link in your email, please comment and I will get that to you ASAP.

We collected a table full of handmade items to donate to various local charities:

And a handful of members told of items they had already donated to charities of their choosing.

Our focus is on the fiber arts, learning and teaching. The Guild meetings are held in Butler County, near the city of Butler, Pennsylvania. The Butler Spinners and Weavers Guild was founded in September of 1982 when Mary Ann Geiger gathered a group of ten people at the Butler Public Library. These people desired to organize a Guild to promote interest in and to teach the art of spinning and weaving. The Butler Spinners and Weavers Guild has been active from the beginning in local and regional Sheep-to-Shawl contests, including those at the Pennsylvania Farm Show (Harrisburg) and Penn’s Colony (Saxonburg), bringing many awards with them back to Butler. Throughout the years members have also demonstrated the art of spinning and weaving at many local events, knitting shops, and schools. During the 10th Anniversary, 20th Anniversary and 25th years of the Butler Spinners and Weavers Guild members exhibited works at The Allied Artists of Butler County. 2012 celebrated 30 years of artistic creation, comradery and sharing our love of fiber art.
