Nadine SandersNadine Sanders is a well known instructor and weaver (known as the singing weaver) using the Theo Moorman Technique.  Her workshop following the Guild meeting is a 3-day intensive on the technique.  Her presentation for the guild is more generally applicable, and will discuss how all of us on occasion lose motivation for our fiber art, and how she discovered her journey back to creativity. 
blue-linehatLaura is a knitwear designer who uses new knitting ideas, some of them small tweaks to things you already do today and some of them brand new concepts. Her designs ‘pop’. She teaches them through swatches and patterns so you can adapt them to all your knitting (showy decreases, flat i-cord, unique cast-ons). She will provide directions for a swatch before her presentation so we have time to try these different techniques.edge treatment

2018 Workshops
Organizers are working on plans for two different workshops for the spring of 2018. The first, on 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. blue-lineIn 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.
