Calling all CW members…

To mark the 40th Anniversary of CW in 2018, we will be publishing our first full-color book. Eight Shafts: Beyond the Beginning will provide a modern look at using eight shafts and 8-shaft combinations in inspiring ways through finished pieces.

You can see an outline of the project here. There are links to further details and to the sign-up form. Note that you will need to be logged in to the website to proceed.

Submission is open to all CW members, and we hope that you will feel as excited about this project as we do. You do not need to be a master weaver, published author, award winner, or known teacher to participate. As you consider a piece to enter, focus on what takes the work “beyond the beginning” and into something uniquely yours.
