On Thursday, October 6, 2016, FRFA members are invited to bring their weaving experiences. This is a member participation “show and tell” program. What kinds of looms have you experienced, what have you made on these looms, where did you get your inspiration, what kinds of yarns have you used, and what did you love and/or what gave you frustration in the weaving process? If you have portable looms, please bring one or two, even if there is unfinished work on them. Maybe you have an unusual loom, or one used for specialty weaving, that you can share at this meeting. Of course, your large loom might be difficult to bring! So consider bringing a photo, the manual, or something that represents this kind of loom. The plan for this meeting is to illustrate the wide variety of weaving equipment, acessories,, yarn or fiber, and any unfinished (or finished) projects made on these looms. We can all look forward to hearing around each other’s experiences with weaving, even if it was that simple little loom on which you stretched knitted loops to make a hot dish mat. That is where you may have begun your journey… and where someone else’s may begin tonight!
During the business time this evening, we are hoping to get suggestions for the programs you might want to see in the the future. So please be thinking about interesting fiber pursuits that we could bring light
Please join us!
Also, take a look at some of the upcoming classes and programs! There are all kinds of exciting opportunities ahead!
