2018 - Late Summer President's Message
The fall is getting closer, and with it comes lots of fun events and activities. I have been weaving dish towels this summer; one color way after another. They make such great gifts for birthdays, weddings, house warmings, and more. They have been fun, easy, and I feel so productive! What projects have you been working on this summer, and what plans do you have for the fall? I hope your plans include attending our events!
Have you been to one of our Meet Ups? They are informal gatherings of like minded fiber people, in the off months that we don't have our formal meetings; they will be on the 2nd Saturday of Oct., Dec., Feb., & Apr., from 10 am - 12 pm at the Whole Foods on the SE corner of Preston Rd. & Forest Lane in Dallas. The next Meet up will be Sat., 10/13 - bring an unfinished project, portable loom, spinning wheel or any kind of hand work and come hang out to talk about the things we love - Fibers! Need to brainstorm a project? Ask a fiber friend for their input! Check out our calendar page
for future Meet Up date & info.
I also want you to start thinking about getting your spinning wheels greased up and your looms fired up! Perhaps you are participating in our Theo Moorman study group which will meet in September; you may have finished your sampler for that gathering. In December, we have our Off the Shelf gift exchange; members create a handmade fiber item right out of their stash (no last minute fiber runs allowed) - we have a hilarious time giving and stealing each others' gift! AND, we have an opportunity in April to participate in a sale of handwovens for the table. Stay tuned for more details about that. Also, start thinking about creating your entries for the Contemporary Handweavers of Texas conference
which will be in May of 2019.
Check the website regularly for updates and news flashes! Have a great, productive (but relaxing) rest of your summer!
Happy Fiber Trails
