DT Mesa Fest – December 8 & 9
On December 8 and 9 we will again have a double booth at the Mesa Arts and Craft Fair. So use this time to keep creating your wonderful pieces.
Of the five years that we have had a booth, we have been awarded either 1st or 2nd place for our booth 3 times! That says a lot about the quality of our work and the people who volunteer their time to organize and run the booth. This is a juried show so we are proud to participate with our best handmade items. As in past years, each artist marks and prices her/his own items. We can’t accept items that were in the booth two years ago. There is a $20 entrance fee for each person and Telarana keeps 15% of all sales, which means you keep 85%! We need high priced, medium priced and low priced items to fit the pocketbooks of the many people who visit our booth.
This is a fun event with a wonderful opportunity for us to show and educate the public on what we do — and do so well! We will again have a demonstration area right next to our booth and people flock to see and learn.
I can’t wait to see all of the beautiful, creative items our members make.

Oh Bag It!
Trudy Johnson will lead a sewing workshop constructing a small cosmetic/tool bag and a larger market bag on January 26 & 27, 2019 from 9am-4pm. Starting with the cosmetic bag, you will learn about appropriate fabrics (handwoven or commercial), interfacing materials, how to line the bag and put in a zipper. For the larger bag, you will incorporate the skills learned earlier and customize with pockets, straps, trim, etc.
Equipment required: sewing machine & usual sewing supplies (scissors, needles, pins or clips). Participants will be advised of materials they should bring including fabric, thread, batting, fabric stiffener, ornaments if desired (buttons, decorative threads, woven bands like kumihimo and/or inkle).
Here’s a chance to use some of your handwoven odds and ends (maybe a sampler from a previous workshop) or weave something specifically for the workshop.
