At the January 3rd Guild meeting the program will be a Makers Fair with free mini workshops by some of our talented members. They will start after the business meeting and continue until 2:00. Bring a bag lunch and plan to stay for the fun.
Judith Ashley & Pam Brown: Fabric Beads
A fun and easy technique for creating unique beads with scraps of fabric, unusual yarn, tiny beads and wire. You can combine them with commercial beads for one-of-a-kind jewelry. Pam and Judith will have lots of supplies to share, but bring sharp scissors.
Sue Gouig: Knotless Netting on a Gourd
Sue will teach this ancient net making technique using waxed linen on a tiny gourd that is perfect for a necklace. She will bring all the supplies.
Phina Borgeson: Simple Knitted Cat Toys
These cute mice are a big hit with Phina’s cats. Bring 10 yards of medium to chunky weight yarn, appropriately sized knitting needles, stuffing and a needle for sewing up. Phina will bring the catnip!
JoAnn Slissman: Framed Needle Felted Art
You saw JoAnn’s stunning art now you can try it yourself. Bring ideas for a simple picture, a picture frame with glass and backing ( 7″x 9″ to 8″x10″), mats are nice. You will also need a couple of felting needles and a 2″ thick piece of foam to work on. If you have dyed wool to share, bring it. JoAnn will supply dyed wool and felted backing.
Judy Tipple: Navigating the Guild’s Facebook & Ravelry Pages
There’s a wealth of inspiration, ideas and instructions on our Guild’s Facebook and Ravelry pages and Judy will show us how to access it.
The Makers Fair will have many wonderful choices but there’s always room for one more workshop. Contact Pam Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to offer a mini workshop or if you have questions. We will be taking sign-ups at the December meeting.
