Hi all,

Just a reminder that our next meeting is Tuesday, 3/26/19.

Lake Metroparks Farmpark 8800 Euclid Chardon Rd

Kirtland, OH 44094

6pm - Casual work time

6:45pm - Show & Tell

7pm - Program:

We will be voting on the 2019 Budget as well as the revised Handbook at this meeting.

Also, if you are not able to attend the April meeting, you may bring your presidents challenge to the March meeting.

 

* WRSW Guild has once again been invited to have a show of our guild's FIBER ART in the West Hallway at Lake Farmpark. The three categories are 1) KITCHEN (towels, napkins, table runners, doilies, etc) 2) RUGS and 3) ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS - for those of you who made something to fulfill the 2017 President's Challenge. Please bring your items to the MARCH 26 meeting. The show will run from APRIL 22 thru May 12. These dates were set after the February/March newsletter was published so that information was incorrect - TAKE IN IS MARCH MEETING ONLY - the April meeting is too late as the show will be up - you can view it during our April meeting!

* Demonstration sign-up sheet for the weekend - May 11 & 12 - will be available at both the March and April meetings. Please help us FULFILL OUR COMMITMENT to Lake Farmpark to demonstrate twice per year in exchange for our meeting space!

• We need volunteers to help with the Make 'n Take event on both days - May 11 & 12. We will be making felted soaps once again. Thanks to guild members for their generous donations of Ivory soap last year, we have sufficient soap for this event. The Felting SIG supplies the felt and we have plenty of zipper bags. We will need three volunteers each day - a sign up sheet will be available at the March and April meetings.

* Openings for half hour PRESENTATIONS during the weekend are still available. So far, we have commitments for Spinning and Rigid Heddle presentations. Does anyone want to demonstrate Felting or Lace making? A power point presentation is not necessary, but can be accommodated. A few introductory words about your process and a multitude of samples of the fiber art will fill a half hour presentation! Last year's audiences were very interested in looking at our process and the results.

Sunday, May 12, is Mother's Day and we (LFP, President Uarda Taylor & our Show Committee) very much appreciate any and all guild members who can make time to demonstrate and/or do a presentation on one or both days. We do not have a set presentation schedule at this time but will work with you and your schedule. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE to everyone who shows up to demonstrate your fiber art and help with the weekend events!

Hi all, Uarda wanted me to post information regarding the TAA  textile art alliance) show which is now on  at Kent State.

Uarda Writes: "This is the “fancy” fiber art exhibit that Textile Art Alliance does every other year.  It is a professionaly juried and presented show. Mostly the stuff is way too far out for me. But it is interesting to look at. It runs from March 1 to July 28, 2019  The receptions is March 21, 5 - 7pm.

The flyer reads:  Focus: Fiber  2019  A National Contemporary Fiber Art Exhibit  Kent State University Museum, Stager and Blum Galleries, Kent, OH  This is in the Textile Museum. Not sure if that is the correct title of the museum.

FYI   Members of TAA have not been included in the exhibit because it is so extreme but I am not very active any more so do not know if anyone in the group has been accepted.  I’ll see a member next Tues to pick up some cards about the show to pass out at our next meeting and ask her.
TAA also puts on an exhibit for its members. It is a very nice show and the refreshments are quite grand."
