President’s Message – December 2023

I love this group! I was really struck at last month’s meeting about how our Guild is so welcoming to every ability, and how our abilities range from newcomers to weaving, all the way to “famous” weavers who get on the covers of magazines and sweep the prizes. And they are all my friends now! Whether you weave for your family, or for income, or for competition, all are welcome here, and all are challenged to learn, mentor, and volunteer to further our passion of weaving. From complex weaving, to simple weaving with lots of textures, technical looms, to simple looms, there is a place here to speak our language, be proud of whichever style we practice, and further our learning.

As the holidays might nudge us to dig out our family secret holiday cookies, let us continue to share freely our knowledge and skills, and not be territorial about what we know or have experience with.

Merry Christmas, and may you have hours of uninterrupted loom time.

  1. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content
    seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers

    • WordPress no longer supports Internet Explorer, which is obsolete. I suggest you switch to Microsoft Edge (Windows 10 and up) or a third-party browser like Firefox or Chromium if you have an older system. As a web developer for over 25 years, I can only hope that Internet Explorer completely dies before I do. It was a horrible browser and never compatible with the HTML and CSS standards, messing up displays of web pages that do comply with the W3C standards, since the beginning of the Internet. Making web pages that work with Internet Explorer while observing standard layout conventions is a lot of work, and involves a lot of messy coding.
