We’ve had a great start to our 18th Gathering weekend! Two workshops, “Landscape ‘Painting’ with Fabric” taught by Susan Hoffmann and “Surface Design on Paper” with Lorrie Grainger Abdo started Thursday afternoon and continue on through Friday afternoon. The groups took time to visit each others’ studios. Come along with us…
Each of the nine workshop students are working with the same fabrics, but are able to design their own touches.
The Walter Studio was set up with several stations to try different surface design techniques on paper.
Jacki Bedworth’s three-hour workshop this afternoon had students leaving with a small Willow Garlic Basket.
Garage sale volunteer sorters and organizers were kept busy Thursday and today with a variety of yarns, books, fabrics, notions, fleece, household items and lots of other items for the Fiber Arts Garage Sale starting Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m.
Several things were pulled aside for the silent auction along with handmade or specialties for the “boutique” table. There are two Ashford spinning wheels, Navajo looms, a 1996 Longaberger sewing basket, standing quilt frame, quilt rack and much, much more.
If that’s not enough, take a look outside at our most perfect fall weather!
