The ‘Lazy Kates’ started as a spinning group. It has evolved into a weaving group,
although many members do spin. They study one weave structure each year – so long as
you don’t consider the three years it took them to get through Twill!
Frequently, they pick a book on a subject and then work through as many of the samples
as they can fit in. They study for about an hour & a half, starting at 10:30 AM, then
break and have a pot luck lunch.
The ‘Lazy Kates’ meet in the Sanctuary Hall of the First United Methodist church of Mount Dora
on Fifth Ave on the third Wednesday of each month from September through May.
The Sanctuary Hall is located behind the Sanctuary.
Parking is available between the church and the chapel.
The ‘Lazy Kates’ welcomes new folks… that is what it is all about… the sharing of ideas
and friendship. In 2016, they decided to make some articles of clothing out of
hand-woven goods… that is a project still in progress! They are always open to
new ideas and new members. Contact Us for more information.
Joy loves to teach beginning weaving. This is the study group for the guild’s new
members and is the path for more and exciting techniques to follow.
Members of the ‘Getting Started’ group learn how to calculate and wind a warp for
their loom. They also learn to read a draft, plan a project and, much more!
Each student also receives their choice of a first project to weave and Joy provides
one-on-one instruction to make sure each new member is comfortable to move forward.
There is no charge for members except for a printed handout and yarn required for the first project.
The group meets on an ‘as need’ basis…

Diane Click, group leader.
The ‘Shuttle Clicks’ meets in Brevard county monthly and studies weave structures
with the intent of broadening the group’s knowledge of the myriad possibilities of
looms and yarn. Most of Ms. Click’s students are new weavers.
The group starts with plain weave and studies a new weave structure every month.
Diane was a student for many years of the guild mentor, Betty TerLouw, and uses
Betty’s notes and samples, as well as her own, to illustrate each structure and challenge
the guild and its new members to Betty’s mantra: to weave more and “sample,
sample, sample.” Contact Us for more information
