The Guild is working with Kansas City Hospice House to provide projects for family members to work on while sitting with hospice patients. Each packet (contained in a sealable plastic bag) should contain instructions and project-specific supplies. For example, small embroidery projects, coloring pages with colored pencils or crayons, small weaving project, etc. Please bring packets to any Weaver’s Guild meeting and turn them in to Jackie Kincaid. She coordinates this effort with the Hospice House.
The Weavers Guild encourages members to form study groups to foster fellowship, advance our weaving and fiber skills and expand our artistic expression. These study groups meet regularly.
