January President’s Message
Happy New Year, Weavers!!
How did the Holidays treat everybody? I know you are all good weavers and am sure Santa had you all on the nice list.
Hopefully everyone has had time to weave up some beautiful textile magic for our upcoming show—Inspired Fiber Art: Contemporary Fiber Art Inspired by Traditional Textiles. I can’t wait to see the diversity and creativity of the fiber artists who participate. It is so inspiring to see and share creative ideas.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the show opening on January 15th!
Happy weaving, Sonya
