|There’s still time to register for the Handweavers Guild of America, Inc.’s (HGA) 2023 Handwoven Bookmark Exchange! This small project provides quick warping, easy weaving, and great satisfaction. The Exchange Coordinator must receive all bookmarks by registered participants by February 28th.|
Versatile bookmarks can be completed on a table loom, rigid heddle loom, inkle loom, or tapestry loom. So many options! This exchange offers flexibility and allows participants to test their creativity. There are no yarn restrictions, nor is there a minimum width or length. The only requirement is to weave four bookmarks and in exchange, you will receive four different bookmarks with instructions to recreate each one. You must be an HGA member to participate. Not an HGA member? Join Today!
Participants will be invited by email to join the Facebook group for the exchange so they can share and communicate with each other.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone’s wonderful woven bookmarks!
