Still Weaving after 20 Years Show & Sale

CCI04052018

The MERA Schoolhouse hosts an art exhibit every month, this month the Schoolhouse Weavers are exhibiting their craft.

As the title says, weaving has been going on at the schoolhouse for 20 years, since its inception in 1998.  While weavers have come and gone, the tradition continues.

There are many items on display, many of which are for sale.  With Mother’s Day quickly approaching next month, why not get a unique one-of-a-kind gift for mom.  And be sure to bring your appetite, as the Steady Way Community Cafe serves up delicious lunches, baked goods and coffee.

    Kelly, great job promoting the Mera weavers. The exhibit is worth seeing for sure. I know the public will enjoy a special trip to McDonald’s corner to see our hard work. Enjoy it with a Cappucino!

    What beautiful weaving! I like the rugs especially. Are any of these items made by you?

    • All but one of the overshot runners are made by me, as well as a towel and scarf. The items on display represent about 8 of the members. A diverse and talented group.

      Hi Kerry – I’m glad you love the rugs. Good news, 3 of the 4 rugs are for sale. They are woven by Leslie Manley (Golds and brun colours), Ellen Good (above the piano) and Ankaret Dean (multi colours) one.
