April 10 Meeting

Join Susan Clark and the attendees of the Julie McLaughlin papermaking workshop for a tale of adventure on a cold winter weekend.  Susan will be sharing some of the paper she made in a wee make and take project. You will be using the pamphlet stitch to make a little booklet to write your heart’s desires in and decorate as you please.

Break Out of Blocks with Split-Shed Weaving

Deborah Silver will teach a three day workshop where the participants will weave curves and blend colors using continuous wefts on a four shaft loom with no special equipment. In this three-day workshop, students will learn to weave multiple combinations of weave structures using only four shafts and a straight threading. Students will also learn to make a cartoon on cloth that will advance with the warp and will not wrinkle when beating. Deborah’stechnique looks very much like tapestry, but is woven on a harness loom (floor loom is faster, but table loom can also be used).

We will use a straight threading and experiment with a 17 structures. Color blending will be addressed in the polychrome sample. For examples of her work see http://deborahsilverstudio.com/index.html

Date of workshop: March 21, 22, 23, 2019, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Place: East Mesa Christian Church, 706 S. Greenfield Road, Mesa, AZ

Estimated Member Cost: $140-160 Register now to reserve your spot! $75 deposit payable at meeting or mail to: Linda Wade, 3716 S Jentilly Ln, Tempe, AZ 85282. Non-members: add $30

The Mourning Project

Mary Veneecke, a fiber artist from Tucson, has launched a community fiber art project and planned exhibition, “The Mourning Project” to emphasize the high rate of infant mortality in the US.  She is looking for volunteers to help crochet/knit/sew/felt 23,000 pairs of baby booties to represent the number of infant mortalities in the US annually.  She plans to collect the booties through Mother’s Day, May 12, and create a traveling art exhibition advocating policy changes to reduce infant mortality.  For more information on how you can participate, go to her link:  http://www.explorefiber.com/open-call-for-submissions-to-the-the-mourning-project/
