We welcome all members of the Guild and all members of our network groups to participate in a tea towel exchange, as part of our 70th year celebrations in June 2017.

All you need to do is:

  • weave four (4) tea towels and keep a weaving record of them;
  • send in three (3) tea towels, each with a copy of the weaving record by 23rd June 2017 (details of “where” below); and,
  • include a $10 entry fee with each set of three towels.

In exchange, you will receive three (3) different tea towels with their weaving records in August 2017.

Helpful Guidelines for Tea Towels


The tea towels may be woven on any loom type (rigid heddle through to computer controlled).

Tea towel should be between 16-20 inches (40-50cms) wide and 24-32 inches (60-80 cms) long.

Hems are more suitable for tea towels than fringes.

The thread should be appropriate to the task.

You may weave four tea towels all the same or four on the same warp but woven with different colours or lifts or four completely different tea towels. The choice is yours, just make sure to send your appropriate weaving records back with each towel.

By 23rd June 2017, your package of three tea towels should be dropped off at the Guild rooms, or sent to:

Andrew McCracken
71 Lalor Drive
Springwood NSW 2777

The tea towels will be displayed at our Open Day in June 2017 to help celebrate our 70th anniversary. Your entry is taken as consent for your work being displayed and, perhaps, photographed for publicity purposes.

If you are enthused, multiple entries are not only permitted but also encouraged!
