Fibre lovers have much to see and do

Desert Sage Spinners & Weavers Guild members will be enjoying a Studio Week at the Quails Nest Art Centre at 5840 Airport Street in Oliver between June 25 and 29

Themes for the days are: Monday, eco dyeing; Tuesday, acid dyeing on wool with Coby vanderGaast; Wednesday, tencel warp dyeing; Thursday, indigo vat and felting.  Members not planning to participate in the dye sessions are encouraged to bring their spinning wheel or own project to work on and enjoy the social ambience of Studio Week.  The public is welcome to drop by.

A four day tapestry workshop entitled “The Value of Value” instructed by Sarah Swett, fibre person extraordinaire, will be held at the Shatford Centre of the Arts in Penticton on Sept 20 to 23rd.  It is exciting that the Guild is able to sponsor an instructor of this calibre to share her vast knowledge in the field of tapestry weaving.

Fibre Festival 2012 …..the third annual…is planned for Saturday Oct 6 at the Shatford Centre for the Arts.  Vendor space is still available.  We encourage vendors who have goods from fibre to finished products….within the fundamental vision of the festival…use of natural fibres, cottage industry and artisan creations.  For more vendor information please contact PJ Mohr at Festival hours will be open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm at no charge.
