What: "Weaving Workshop in Oaxaca by Karen Elrod
When: Thursday, March 6, 2014, 6:30 .Where: South Valley Unitarian Church, 6876 South Highland Drive
Karen Elrod, a member of our Guild, recently returned from a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, where she had the great privilege of learning about Zapotec weaving. She worked with local Zapotec Indian weavers to learn their style of weaving and had the opportunity to see some the beautiful archeological sites. She visited several of the local craft markets, and she will bring some of the examples of the local crafts that she bought. She is going to share her experiences with us--a great opportunity to learn about this beautiful form of ethnic weaving.
How are your projects coming along for the Fashion Show in May? Hopefully they have been started and are well on their way. Remember that we can bring items from the past too--as long as it is a garment you have woven, spun, knit, sewn, embellished, etc. and would like to share with the group. It will be fun to see what we as a group come up with. There are so many talented and creative members in our Guild!
at the March meeting there will be a table set up for those who
would like to reallocate items from their stash to someone else. All
we ask is for a donation of 20 percent from the proceeds of the sale
to go to the library fund, and if you bring something that doesn’t
go home to a new owner, please take it back home with you. Sound
