Past Programs

Oct. 11, 2018
Bateman Weaves with Linda Davis

In the mid-1900’s, Dr. William Bateman, a Ph.D. in chemistry, spent his retirement years experimenting with weaving. He was not content with exploring only traditional, known weave structures. He developed several new ones that have become known as “Bateman Weaves”. Linda Davis will present an overview of Bateman weaves at the October meeting. Following the guild meeting, she will conduct a workshop on three Bateman tied weaves.

Linda has been weaving for nearly 45 years with tied weaves being one of her favorite weave structures and has been the recipient of many exhibit awards. She teaches workshops and seminars on tied weaves and tartans, among others, and is the author of Bateman Weaves, The Missing Monograph. She is active in Complex Weavers, is a past president of the Association of Northwest Weavers Guilds and is currently chair of the Weaving Guilds of Oregon Traveling Show. A past member of PHG, she was President in 1996 and Fashion Show Chair for Convergence ’96 in Portland.

Programs 2017-2018

After hearing your feedback, the format for this year’s programs will change. We will begin with a welcome, any PHG business, show-and-tell, break, and then proceed with program content. A white board and the info table are available for announcements and there will be time at the very end of the meeting for any last-minute issues.

If you need to provide an announcement to the group, please use the white board or be prepared at the end of the meeting.

The Day Program will remain in Room 7 at MAC. We tried to find a better room but nothing was available that met our needs. The Evening Program will be in the Auditorium in September, December, February, and June; it will be in Room 7 for the remaining months. We hope that this change will help address the concerns that the auditorium lighting, audio, and overwhelming size are a serious distraction, and we will try to make sure the library access is still good.  

Also in response to your suggestions, we are trying to use more local talent, and to have more “hands-on” and sharing. See the lineup below.
