Join us as we listen to Justin Squizzero speak on Any Flower Drawn: Restoring a 19th-century Linen Damask Jacquard.
In this presentation, Justin tells the story of how a mid-19th century Jacquard machine made for the Irish linen damask industry made its way to Scotland and Vermont, and follows the process of restoring that machine to weaving figured linen damask.

Founded in 1922, the Weavers' Guild of Boston is the oldest weavers' guild in the United States. With over 300 members worldwide, our monthly meetings aim to educate members and the general public in the artistic and technical aspects of handweaving and to advance the standards of handweaving.
Members also enjoy a choice of two to four workshops each meeting (workshop registration begins August 15), a quarterly Bulletin (which includes a handweaving draft with instructions), an extensive library, a Ratings program, Education Grants, special extended workshops, and participation in our Annual Sale.
The Guild meets the second Wednesday of the month from September to November and from February to May. Guests are always welcome.
