We hope that you plan to attend the BRFG meeting, Saturday, November 19th, 10:30, at the Art Space, 377 Shadowline Drive, Boone. We will have a business meeting followed by a time for show and share of your handmade holiday items. This will be our program and you are encouraged to participate. You can share items from any favorite holiday. You’re also invited to bring a snack for all to share.
If you are not able to join us in person, you can join us via Zoom.
Just are reminder for our meeting this Saturday at the Watauga Art Space at 10:30. This will be a big business meeting plus Vicki is doing a program on color work.
Join us next Saturday, the 17th, 10:30 at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (downtown Boone) for our September guild meeting. We will be saving plenty of time for sharing your creations and look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to recently. And bring a snack to share!
The program will be sharing the process I used making hand sewn ornaments featuring the 12 Days of Christmas by Larissa Holland. You can find her at mmmcrafts.blogspot.com, Bring your good “fabric” scissors if you’d like to make a pear. All other materials will be furnished.
Hopefully you’ve had a chance to visit Edgewood Cottage last week to view our 11 members who exhibited. It was a stunning show! Thank you to Susan Payne and Susan Sharpe and to everyone else who has worked to make this show a success. We are grateful for your diverse talents.
See you soon,
PS. There is an ASU football game at 3:30. We
will be finished in plenty of time to get out
of the way!
This is from me (Rhonda)
I was at the Cancer Center yesterday and asked about needs for hats and they said to bring them so you can drop them by the center yourself or get them to me to take. They didn’t have specific requirements but you would need to use a soft washable yarn. I would suspect that hats for men are especially needed.
For Project Linus, I dropped our donations off to the person in Hendersonville when I went to the Anything Fiber Sale so I will take the box for that back to the Art Center when I go for banjo on Thursday so you can start filling it up again.
|The weaving studio at the Western Watauga Community Center has been very busy this summer. Here are pictures of two of the new student’s work. Susan Sharpe teaches this class which meets on Monday and Friday mornings. If you wish to learn to weave or to continue your weaving skills, feel free to join them.|
Here are photos of some of our guild members demoing and selling at the Boonerang festival. It was very successful and the weather was great.

BRFG members enjoyed an inspiring program by Susan Payne in May. Susan shared her inspiring collection of “stash slashing” quilts and had many of us motivated to try her process!
