Our May meeting program was a mini felting workshop taught by the talented Jane Campbell. We had a blast and here are some examples of our work.

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,

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.
Eco Pounding Workshop at August Meeting
BRFG members joined Mona Anderson who led an Eco Pounding workshop at WWCC following our August meeting. Process was satisfying and results were pleasing! A great time pounding was had by all!
|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.|
