Fiber Celebration 2020 is a juried fiber show where we exhibit fiber pieces in an art gallery setting for 4 weeks from June 15 through July 12, 2020. We have the entire main floor of the Carnegie Center for Creativity in Ft. Collins, Colorado, allowing us to pub on a very large exhibit. Fort Collins is a tourist destination so we get a lot of foot traffic during those 4 weeks. This is an excellent way to showcase to the public at-large what beautiful work fiber art is. We have awards and drawings for prizes – not to mention a fantastic Opening Reception! For more information, please visit our website nocoweaversguild.org and click on the Fiber Celebration tab. Thank you.

Weaving, especially twills. I use the WeaveIt computer design program, and can help you get started with it, or help you solve a problem. Dyeing (synthetic dyes) of yarns and rovings is another area where I can help.
I am also an experienced spinner.
New weavers found they had many questions about very basic procedures for setting up their loom, for determining sett, reading a draft, creating their next woven piece; how to enlarge or telescope a pattern, where to go for solutions to problems, which fiber to use for a particular project, etc., so they came together and formed this study group.
The main purpose of this study group is to help answer questions, concerns, problems, how-to’s, solutions, etc., we focus on this. However, as we’ve evolved, we realized we needed to have a point of focus besides just Q&A discussions. To that end, we vote on and set ourselves goals to be reached each year and work together towards achieving those goals.
WHEN: Second Monday of the month from 5:15p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Ewe and Me, 1045 West Garden of the Gods Road, Colorado Springs, CO.
