Guild Meeting (10:00 to 11:00)
“Card Trick: the  Magic of Tablet Weaving” (11:00 to noon)
Featured Presenter: Marilyn Romatka

This lecture/demonstration class offers a window onto one of the best-kept secrets of the weaving world – that you can weave with nothing but threads and a deck of cards! Originating in the Iron Age, this technique is enjoying a surge in popularity lately as it is re-discovered by weavers today. We will discuss the theory, the history, and many of the weaving techniques themselves, and view examples sure to awe and inspire.

Our presenter is Marilyn Romatka. Marilyn’s focus is living folk art crafts. She teaches a wide variety, from painting techniques to weaving, the common thread being the techniques are all deep-rooted in a culture from around the world. You might say the techniques she teach have all survived the ‘test of time’. Marilyn recognizes that she has the best job in the world; she trave to various countries gathering folk art techniques, and then returns to the US to teach enthusiastic students!
