CHH SWATCH SWAP: 2023’s theme is “Sky Scapes”. Sign up for Swatch Swap 2023 is ongoing! Our goal is to find inspiration in her work that will lead us to produce a sample that challenges us to explore, experiment, and simply try something new. Swatch Swap is about sharing our love of weaving while exploring topics that change yearly. Our library volumes demonstrate the many we have studied thus far.
