       Ariadne is a Pre-Greek mythological princess that falls in love with a man named Theseus. Ariadne's father captured Theseus to feed/appease the Minotaur. The Minotaur was trapped in a great labyrinth and the plan was to trap Theseus in the same labyrinth. To save her beloved Theseus, Ariadne fashioned a thread that Theseus tied to his belt so he could find his way back to her through the labyrinth. Theseus killed the Minotaur, returned to Ariadne, and they sailed away. The story continues but you get the gist of it.

     Since our guild membership spans the spectrum of Fiber Arts, we wanted a name that would apply to everyone. The common thread was the "thread", whether you are spinning, weaving, knitting, or even sewing it. In a sense each member is a thread, hence "threads". We learn from each other, try new things and have great time visiting.

     As for the Ariadne part . . . Life is one big labyrinth to navigate. We all need a little of Ariadne's magic once in a while to find our way back to what we love.
