See our Face Book page: MCC Tapestry and Navajo weaving study group Our Guild also has a Face Book page: Telaraña Weavers and Spinners Guild I hope you are a member of that also.

PLEASE COLLECT:

Coffee cans/lids or plastic containers/lids to put coffee grounds and peelings of vegetables/fruit. The MCC Red Mountain has a newly planted orchard with 9 fruit trees and has started a compost pile. The containers will be sent home with students to collect this material. Give to Sharie.

Boxes or we used to call them flats. When you are in the grocery stores, look down the beverage aisle and see if a soda pop representative is filling product. He/she will be happy to have you take the boxes. We need them for our children’s weaving project at Pueblo Grande Museum in February. Sharie is collecting these and will pre-cut them so they are ready to be warped.

Yarn suitable for Navajo weaving and tools (Forks) to be sent to Tohatchi High School in New Mexico. They have a class in Navajo weaving for interested students. They always need yarn and tools. A one-ply wool yarn like Brown Sheep brand or handspun is what is needed. Give to Sharie to mail.
