Next Guild meeting on October 13, 1pm Doors open at noon for social hour.
Masks are recommended but not required. There will be no snacks and drinks offered, so bring your own water bottle. If you are reluctant to meet in person, we plan to stream the meeting.
Our program presenter, Ann Morton, will offer a comprehensive visual review of the Violet Protest, a nationwide public engagement project that employs handmade textiles as tools for protest against political divisiveness, and instead, generates a creative call for national unity. Thousands of makers from across all 50 states, DC and Canada have contributed 8×8 inch squares using a variety of textile processes, and equal parts red and blue, to create their individual messages supporting the core values of the Violet Protest. The project goal is to send bundles of approx. 24-25 of these individual squares to all members of the 117th US Congress by early 2022 as a unique demonstration of protest, and to voice our hopes and support for cooperation between lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Just because the pandemic shut down our avenue for selling members’ creations last year doesn’t mean our members stopped creating. We’re putting on our own sale this year! It will be held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, November 27, in our regular meeting space at the East Mesa Christian Church, 706 S Greenfield Rd, Mesa 85206. Hours: 9am – 3pm
Members, here are all the details on how to participate.
Don’t forget about our Inspiration Challenge! We still need more items before both scheduled shows. See details under “Events”.
