What are friendship bags? They are nice size tote bags constructed from several different pieces of hand-woven fabric shared with weaver friends. We will give you dimensions later but for now we just want to know who and how many want to do this. You only need to weave as much as the number of bags you want. If you want one bag, weave enough for one. If you want to two, weave enough for two.
Bags are woven using 8/2 cotton at a dense epi to make a strong fabric. A completion date will be set at which time we gather as a group to cut/serge fabric into pre-determined sizes and everyone chooses the pieces (4/bag) they want and then sew. Sewing can be done in the comfort of your home. Two people can share weaving/sewing skills, if you weave but do not sew or sew but do not weave, team up to make your bags.
Sue Briney and Kathleen Craig will co-chair this project. If you have questions, contact one of them. Sign-up here to participate–any number of members can participate! . . . The estimated start time for this project is Jan 2017 (after the book projects are done!)
