The Southeast Fiber Forum is coming up April 20-23, 2017 in Gatlinburg, TN. There are a range of interesting workshops from spinning, to dying, to needle felting. This gathering of fiber artists from around the south happens every other year. The guild hosted one year and some members have attended multiple Fiber Forums. In addition to the registration fee, there is a $5 lifetime membership fee (an even better deal than the guild!).

We are finally set for a first weaving study group meeting. It will be on second Thursdays, the first one being in November on the 10th at 6:00pm at Hoover Church of Christ. Anyone interested in weaving is welcome to come. Bring a project on a small loom, if you have one going. That would include inkle, rigid heddle, card, backstrap, tapestry, even zoom looms. Otherwise, just come ready to be inspired. If you want to be included in the reminder emails, let Kathryn know. Or watch the new Weaving Study Group thread on Ravelry.

This Saturday’s program will be feature Birmingham’s own Lillis Taylor from Bib and Tucker. She will be walking us through a hand-sewing project. We will be making a small sewing notions bag. Please bring sewing needles with large eyes and a pair of sharp scissors. As always, also bring your Show and Tell! We will have the program in the morning starting at 10am, break for lunch, and then share our recent or in-progress work!! The meeting will be in our regular location on the lower level of the Hoover Church of Christ. Park in the front on the Lorna Road side and look for the balloons to see the entrance door!
