Susquehanna Valley Spinners & Weavers Guild Meeting
Jul 13 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

The Susquehanna Valley Spinners & Weavers Guild will hold their monthly meeting on Sunday July 13, 2014. The meeting is held at the Masonic Lodge, located at 361 Chestnut St., Mifflinburg, PA. Social time begins at 1:30 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 2:00 p.m.

The topic of this meeting will be “Nalebinding.” Anne Decker, from Baltimore, MD will be presenting a talk on Nalebinding, Nalebinding (Danish: literally “binding with a needle” or “needle-binding”) is a fabric creation technique predating both knitting and crochet. Also known in English as “knotless netting,” “knotless knitting,” or “single needle knitting,” the technique is distinct from crochet in that it involves passing the full length of the working thread through each loop, unlike crochet where the work is formed only of loops, never involving the free end. It also differs from knitting in that lengths must be pieced together during the process of Nalebinding rather than a continuous strand of yarn that can easily be pulled out. Anne will share her work along with her presentation.

Visitors and potential members are welcome. Please call Ruth Burnham 570-523-8311, Brenda Ocker 570-966-9489 or Joyce Howard 814-577-7881 should you have any questions.
