Don’t forget that we are open this weekend and next plus we now have access to open the gallery at anytime if you wanted to have a private showing with someone (family, friends from out of town, etc.)

September 19th Guild Meeting

We will be having our Sept. meeting at the Florence Art School in West Jefferson at 10 AM. We need to start our meeting a little earlier so that we can be in the gallery before it opens to the public. Here is their website: There are directions on the website. We will be showing our exhibit there and have a Gallery talk. Please join us in person if you would like or join us on Zoom. Please let us know if you plan to attend in person.

Four Thousand French Knots, detail

Our next guild meeting is tomorrow at 10:30 via Zoom.  I have sent the link in my email. We will start with a business meeting and Show and Tell. Then at 11 we have a great program for you.

July Guild Meeting

We have decided with the recent spike in COVID cases to hold this month’s meeting on Zoom. We will start at 12:30. Susan S. and I will broadcast together from her studio in Sugar Grove. We will do Show and Tell and will also discuss ikat dying and inkle weaving. I have a video on inkle weaving that I could possibly show.

June 20th Guild Meeting 2020

Spindolyn Support SpindleThe response to meet next Saturday was overwhelming to meet at Hickory Ridge at 12:30. Bring your on chair (I think there are some benches we can set up too), drinks etc. We will be practicing Social Distancing. We are going to do a program on Drop Spindling for fun. Susan S and I have a variety of different spindles we can bring for you to use or you can bring your own.  We will have them disinfected for your use. We will also have fiber available. If rain is in the forecast, we will do another Zoom call.

May 16th Guild Meeting

Artists at Edgewood Cottage in 2019We will be doing another Zoom meeting for our May 16th meeting starting at 10:30. A couple of us are going to meet at Susan Sharpe’s studio so feel free to come join us if you feel comfortable doing that. She and I will host the meeting from there like we did last month. We will mute the room once we begin and call on people one by one for show and tell. We learned during last month’s meeting that anytime a person speaks, they take over the room so we wish to avoid this this time around.
Our agenda will be similar to last month’s. We will have each member do show and tell and we will discuss upcoming business. Our show at the Jones House for June was canceled but we hope to be on their schedule in the fall plus they mentioned having an online gallery using pictures of artists work to display. We will discuss this plus our show at the Visitor Center down in Wilkes County. Susan will also be discussing a dye workshop and there’s a spinning class coming I believe as well.
