We meet physically at The Point, Center for Arts and Education on the campus of the CC Young Memorial Home, located at 4829 West Lawther Drive, in East Dallas near White Rock Lake.

May 2023 President's Message

Color and weave with basketweave sample

Hello fellow fiber enthusiasts!

Well it is hard to believe that summer is almost over!  The heat has not gone away, but things are starting to begin again.  Our first meeting will be Saturday, August 26.  The meeting starts at 9:30. Katherine has a wonderful program planned for us to get inspired and to meet our fellow members!  I hope to see you there!

We had some wonderful get-togethers over the summer with Fiber Play and Movie Night.  I really enjoy getting to see people other than during our normal meeting times.  They were both such a hit that we will be continuing these activities throughout the year.  Thank you to Martha, June and Katherine for hosting these events.  Watch your newsletter for new dates and information.

The guild has a lot going on this fall – Fiber Fest, the CC Young Exhibition, volunteering and a workshop!  Grab a cup of tea/coffee and sit down and read all of the things we will be doing.  I know that the newsletter is long, but it contains lots of information for you. Please volunteer, help, and participate where you are able. 

I am currently working on color and weave with basketweave for our first Study Group meeting on September 11.  There is so much you can do with plain weave!  

Happy weaving/spinning/dyeing/felting/you name it!!
