Be sure to join us this coming Tuesday at 7PM at Farmpark for our second of two fiber studies this year. This time we'll be looking at wool... what are its properties, and how does this affect your project? Join Nancy, Jan, Nora and Susan for a lively panel discussion of wool and how it's used in felting, spinning, knitting and weaving. There will be time for Q & A, and plenty of samples to see and touch to give you inspiration for your projects!
Don't forget that our room is open at 6PM for early arrivals. Come and bring your current portable project and take a little time to work, or to share it with others!
See you on Tuesday.
As of July 31, we have 15 weavers registered for our November workshop with international weaver and lecturer, Jette Vandermeiden! This will be an exciting event, and with only 5 places left we hope that if you're not already signed up that you'll consider joining us in November. More information is available on the workshops tab at wrspinweave.org - please contact Nancy Curtiss for openings.
Just a reminder that our next meeting is this coming Tuesday, April 28. Our program will be on Braids, presented by Tracy Jackson, and we'll have a Tips-n-Tricks for the handspinner. See you at 7PM!
So what have you been up to over this long cold winter? Hopefully, the snow and below freezing temps encouraged you to stay indoors and work on your fiber art of choice! Whether your project is finished or unfinished.... take a picture of it and send it to Cheryl with one sentence describing what you're doing! Not camera savvy when it comes to point, click and post? Then why not write up a paragraph on a class that you've taken, or a new fiber skill that you're learning. Maybe you're a member of one of our SIGs.... tell everyone why you joined, and what you've learned thus far! We want to hear all about it! Our faithful newsletter editor Cheryl will be putting together our April/May edition of the guild newsletter at the end of this month. Please submit your item of interest to her by Saturday, March 21.
Happy New Year! join us for the first meeting and program of 2015. Don't forget that our 2014 President's Challenge will be presented! If you've made "Something Warm" be sure to show and tell! The meeting starts at 7PM at Lake Metroparks Farmpark.
