The October program is going to be an informative one – how to photograph textiles! Bring some textiles of your own and a camera (it could be a digital camera or your phone’s camera) and we will have some hands on practice time. Some of the topics Christine Miller will cover will be styling and framing your shot, use of flash, focus, how to hang your work, and draping for a beautiful shot. We will also talk about posting to social media, filters, and collaging images. It’s going to be a fun and productive meeting!
We always have a "clothesline" show and tell segment in our meeting! Bring your latest creation and strut your stuff!
Go to the Calendar Page for more details about location.
2019 - September President's Message
It may not feel like Fall is in the air, but it is just around the corner! Our organization is returning to monthly meetings and meet ups! Be sure to visit the website and check out the calendar page and get those dates on your personal calendar. We have a great lineup of programs and speakers throughout the 2019-2020 meeting year. Remember we are meeting on our old schedule this year, kicking things off in September and continuing on through May, with a couple of special events sprinkled throughout the year.
It’s a time to start those wheels and looms humming with gifts and winter projects. And what better way to kick of the new Guild year with a workshop led by Elisabeth Hill the end of September! Her “Off the Grid” 3 day workshop will explore pushing the boundaries of plain weave into new interpretations. I know new ideas will be percolating in everyone’s brains during and after that workshop. The photo I’m including in my post is a picture of me at my loom, playing with the double weave overshot idea Jennifer Moore shared with us in the Double Rainbow workshop in Fort Worth last fall. So don’t let those new ideas sit unused! Do some sampling and explore them!
I am looking to add a new committee chair to the board, a Communications Officer. This position would focus on posting to the various social media platforms we have like Instagram, Facebook, the blog on our website, Pinterest, and Ravelry. If you think you might be interested in this position, please contact me! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to a new year, and if you have any ideas for the guild, my inbox is open!
Happy Fiber Trails!
