Susan Shie Lecture

The room was packed for the June meeting, held at the Eastminster church. Our guest artist Susan Shie had several large quilts spread on tables to view, painted in soft turquois, mango yellows and pinks.. The quilts were peopled with hand drawn, whimsical faces and bodies, densely surrounded words written in fine black script,

She began her talk by reminding us that we all, as children, were natural artists. Somewhere along the way many became fearful of drawing and making mistakes. Her mission is to help her students recapture the joy of drawing and throw away the erasers.

We felt it!

We had a great meeting on Monday. Many of our felting members brought their artwork to show us. Many of them also did demonstrations, so we had a chance to see how it’s done and play a little. There are so many different approaches to felting!More Information

January question

On January 14, 2017 the Fiberarts Guild gathered for its annual Potluck Fundraiser, arguably our most fun event of the year. We ate, chatted, laughed, and hugged. As in years before, the Chinese auction held a myriad of art supplies, yarn, fabric, and many other assorted goodies gleaned from each other’s studios (one person’s trash is another one’s treasure). In the silent auction, we bid on (and sometimes vied hotly for) beautiful items handmade mostly by Guild members.
