Sixty Scarves for 60 Years
To commemorate their 60th anniversary The Weavers Guild of Greater Baltimore published a beautiful design collection book, Sixty Scarves for 60 Years in 2009.The original book sold out in a year and a half and been sought after ever since. Lucky for us they decided to do a reprint, which includes some new designs and a sturdier cover. Full page, color photographs, fabric detail photos and instructions for 60 scarves contributed by the guild's members, many of whom you will recognize. Virginia West, Tom Knisely, Janet Stollnitz, Diane Kelly and Georgia Groomes are among the 41 weavers who collaborated on this project. Drafts range from 2-24 shafts, including an inkle and triangular loom design. There are scarves woven with handspun yarns, painted warps and popular knitting yarns, as well as those that employ a variety of differential shrinkage techniques. This collection represents a myriad of tastes as varied as the weavers themselves.
