Here’s our mission.
In May, Study group gathered for the finale of the year and harnessed the concept for our coming year Study topic, Botanical.
Whether you choose:
a fiber (i.e., hemp, cotton, bamboo, linen,)
a dye (i.e., indigo, madder)
a subject (i.e., weave a pictorial, tapestry, a color flow as in botanical subject)
a botanical object to weave (i.e., a three-dimensional object maybe, or felt?)
or a combination
The choices are vast, there being almost no restrictions. Using imaginations and all the resources we have available to us; this should prove to be a wonderful project. And exceedingly interesting for our exhibit that will be on display in April.
Bring your current work, questions, show and tell.
April 3-10, 2023

The set up for our show at the Beachwood library on April 3rd is cancelled. The show will not

We are still hoping to do the show in Chagrin Falls in June. We will keep you informed as to events there.
At this time there is no definite news about our meeting and workshop in April. It does not look too good, but Patty will be in touch when she has more information.
I hope you are all in good spirits and healthy. Keep sending pictures and news. Elfriede
