Back To Front Page


The Duneland Weavers’ Guild will hold its monthly meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 10, at the Baugher Center, 100 West Indiana Street, Chesterton.

After Show ’n Tell, Guild members will compete in a Silent Auction for unique quality home items including fiber goods. Bidding will work up an appetite for the holiday potluck.

For information about programs, see Meetings are open to the public and visitors are welcome, including non-weavers and not-yet weavers, as well as other fiber artists.Ę

The November Duneland Weaver’s Guild was devoted to the home uses for and wearing of wool. Margaret Demko, experienced in raising sheep, goats, and alpacas, described the characteristics of the wool from many breeds and recommended wools that are the most comfortable to wear. She wore a skirt and top of felted wool that surprised the Guild by the youthful style and comfort. She also brought supplies for members to make a felted ball for use in their clothes dryers. Wool balls are eco-friendly, cut down on drying time, and eliminate the cost of dryer sheets.
