Save the Date, Saturday, November 14!

For our November meeting, we’re excited to hear from guild member and textile artist Miriam Norris Omura, who will talk about her work as a weaver in a program entitled “A Contemporary Shift on Double Ikat: dye painted warp and weft.” 

Miriam will do a brief lecture with slide show and video clips giving a bit of background on traditional ikat, showing images of four contemporary artists (including herself) whose work pulls from ikat influences, and then Miriam will talk specifically about her own process. She’s bringing samples of her work so we can see her technique up close, and she will have detailed handouts for those weavers who want to try their hand at the process. 

Please join us for this exciting program. One of the great benefits of a guild membership is getting to see what extraordinary work our members do, and getting a chance to hear first-hand how they make the magic happen.


  1. Where will this take place and what time does it start. Sounds to be exciting!

  2. Paula, Sorry it took a while to reply. This meeting will be at In The Making, the great knit shop in Cahaba Heights. We're meeting in the basement room that they normally use for classes. The meeting starts at 10 and lasts for a couple hours. You can see the guild newsletter with more information about our group, I just posted the current issue on the blog.

    I hope you can come. It looks like a great program!
