View some photos we took of the weaving class visiting the Watauga County Arts Council Fiber Exhibit last Friday. I will post other pictures of the exhibit as well as I receive them.
This is just a reminder of our guild meeting tomorrow night. Susan and Rhonda will do a demo on clasped weft weaving plus we will be discussing membership renewals, elections and the yART sale. Also we will be discussing program planning for 2019.
Hey, don’t forget that our Fiber Guild is exhibiting at the Watauga Council Art Space for the month of Sept. Our opening reception is tonight from 5:30 – 7:30. If you are out and about in Boone tonight, drop by, view our show and enjoy refreshments and music!
Hi, the spinning group will meet next Sunday instead of this week because of the holiday weekend.
The Blue Ridge Fiber Guild will meet on Thursday, Aug 16, 6:30-8:00 at the Western Watauga Community Center. Members are invited to bring fiber art projects (finished or not) for the September exhibition at ArtSpace. Also on display will be many of the projects from the natural dye workshop last week. View pictures of the workshop here.
We are planning to have the Macomber loom there for members to demonstrate, and need volunteer weavers and spinners with wheels. Rhonda Gladden has warped the loom in an 8-harness point twill pattern, and members who want to weave tea towels can come in throughout the next few weeks.
A second “Indigo and More” Workshop is being offered at Redwing Studio by Susan Sharpe and Ellie Hjemmet on Saturday, August 25. Dye vats will be available again in indigo, osage orange, myrobalan, walnut, natural indigo, and umbilicaria lichen. Cost of the workshop is $75 for non-members, and $65 for members. Contact Susan Sharpe at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register.
It’s that time – to show off. If you want feedback on your potential projects for the show – please bring and let the group know if you are having any problems, or think it’s too bit, or too small….etc.
