2022 Weaving Challenge: 2 or 4 shaft pattern exchange
Each person will bring a weaving draft in a sealed envelope for a 2 shaft or 4 shaft loom. We're planning to put them in separate piles so that those with a rigid heddle loom can pick a 2 shaft pattern and the others will pick a 4 shaft. Each of us will weave something using the draft you picked ... no specification as to what must be woven (i.e it could be 4" x 4" or a huge wall hanging), the colors used and it must have an embellishment (i.e ranging from a single thing, say a button, or more). Bring your drafts to the weavers' group meeting in January.
2021 Weaving Challenge: Stash Weave It and Wear It -- other than a scarf.
The materials used should come from your stash unless you don't have one ... in that case, be inventive and come up with another source of fiber, preferably not bought for this project. And since we've all woven scarves, make something different.

May 2016 Weaving Challenge: A wall hanging. The Weaving Study Group began the challenge of creating a wall hanging six months ago. The group decided on the parameters: we would all use the same fiber (5/2 cotton) and colors (red, white and black) and we would each weave a finished piece at least 12" x 12". The weave structure and design were chosen by each individual weaver. The completed squares were collected at the May 10th meeting and were assembled by member Sandee Jaastad in time to be displayed at the Colorado Weaver's Day in Colorado Springs May 21, 2016. We are very pleased with the results.
2015 Weaving Challenge
Each member received 5/2 cotton in natural and soldier blue and were to weave a table runner. Weavers could choose to add one additional color.
