Welcome

POJAGI PANELS!
Date:  April 5, 2018
Place:  Manitou Art Center
Time:  5:30 p.m.

 

Susan with New Hue Textiles is now located at TWiLL in the Manitou Art Center (MAC) and is providing our program for April 5.  She suggested that we make a Pojagi Panel for a community project and we will be dyeing the panels to begin the project.  We may work on putting the panel together in May and June, if needed.  These panels are part of a TWiLL sponsored program and may be displayed at a later date at the Cottonwood Center. 
The panels are decorated by embroidery, knitting, spinning, weaving or can be re-sewn, written on, drawn on however the artist sees fit.  We are hoping for each of us to make a square to fit together to be sewn into one panel with FRFA information at the bottom or top of it.  Possibly our mission statement on one of the panels too?
***Of major note: we will meet at the MAC for this meeting since that is now where Susan is mostly practicing her craft.  It will be fun to mix it up and meet  at her studio for April only.****
MAC location and address:
Manitou Art Center
Hours of operation:
M-F 8am-8pm
8am-5pm
11am – 5pm
The location does have parking to the side of the building and street parking  too. If you are familiar with the area this building is directly across the street from Manitou’s Memorial Park (yes, they have a memorial park too, not to be confused with Colorado Springs). This building is on the South side of the street opposite the Police station.  If you pass the police station you’ve gone too far.  To be clear it is not across from the police station.  It is across the street from the park.

 

General Notes:

** just a reminder since it is THAT time of year..  that if the weather is bad, check to see if District 11 cancelled.  Because if they did, we did to
