Looking Ahead to the February 2023 Meeting:
Weavers' Guild of Boston Textile Travelogue
Red velvet fabric is being woven on an antique 19th century Jacquard loom at Soierie Saint-Georges in Lyon, France, a silk shop specializing in antique reproduction fabrics for museums and elite estates, as well as haute couture. This tiny silk workshop is filled with the vintage equipment to create beautiful fabrics from eras gone by. “I wanted to lie down on the floor with my arms out and get transported back in time.” recalls Laurie Steger. Laurie will share more pictures and talk about this unique silk shop during Textile Travelogue: Members' Experiences in February
