September 26 - Our first meeting of the year is the kickoff and will be a really enjoyable evening. In addition to a preview of coming events, we will break into groups and get some hands-on experience as we visit stations set up around the room. Jane Milner will have a kumihimo braiding loom set up for people to try their hand. Lindsey Cleveland will show what she has learned about color and fiber blending. And Jan Evers, who is attending Jane Stafford's "Color and Design" workshop this summer, will show her weaving samples. See you there!

  • Workshops in the works for 2018 Organizers are working on plans for two different workshops for the spring of 2018. The first, tentatively planned for March 28-30 is a Theo Moorman weaving workshop to be taught by Nadine Sanders, the "Singing Weaver," from Sebastopol. The Theo Moorman technique is an inlay process that allows the weaver to create an image but not through pickup. It moves faster than pickup. Examples of Nadine's weavings are shown below. Diana Abrell is organizing this workshop. If you have interest in attending this workshop (not a commitment at this point) call Diana at 273-3095 or email at star_flower@comcast.net. In early May, if there is enough interest, there will be a spinning workshop presented by Kate Larson. Kate uses the fiber arts as a bridge between her passions for art and agriculture. She raises a variety of sheep breeds and is the author of "The Practical Spinner's Guide to Wool." Shan Kendall is organizing this workshop. If interested please let Shan know at 478-5628 or shan.kendall@gmail.com.
