        June Guild Meeting

What:  Potluck Luncheon and Embelish Bags

When: Saturday, June 7

Where: Timmy Burton's Heber Studio

  

Our Guild year-end meeting will be at Timmy Burton’s studio in Heber City. This studio is very special—you won’t want to miss this opportunity. The studio is large with everything you could ever need for fiber projects. We really appreciate Timmy’s willingness to share her facilities with us. 

The day will begin at 9:00 and last until about 2:00 or 3:00, with a potluck lunch. Please bring a dish to share. The Guild will provide drinks. Also please bring a folding chair.

 Timmy has a marvelous collection of unusual bags. She will have her bag collection on display for us, and she encourages you to bring your cameras!

 Our project for the day will be the wonderful embellished bags done by Rebecca Winter. Please see the pictures of these bags and instructions for embellishing them, found in a PDF on the website with this newsletter.

 We hope that all of you will make a bag. All necessary supplies will be provided, and Kathleen McMaster will demonstrate the process and provide a pattern for the bag. However, if you would like to bring a few pieces of interesting fabric and some buttons or beads, that would be great. If you want to sew your bag together, please bring your sewing machine. There are lots of outlets and table tops at Timmy’s studio. (A few sewing machines will be available to share.)

 If you would like to bring all the supplies to make your own bag, this is what you will need:

         Pieces of handwoven or commercial fabric

        Embellishments such as buttons, beads, embroidery threads

        Fusible interfacing

        Lining fabric

We hope to see all of you at Timmy’s!

President's Message.

 Spring has sprung, and we get to look forward to milder weather—birds singing and blooming flowers. I love the rebirth of this season and the possibilities of creative growth it presents to us. As fiber artists we can take inspiration from the spectacle unfolding around us and use it in our work. We have so many possibilities we could follow. The beautiful color combinations we find when we look at flowers or the joy birdsong brings to our hearts—all lead to creativity. Our Guild is also offering up some fiber inspiration in April. First there will be the Fiber Festival on April 11–12, followed by Rebecca Winter’s “Color and Weave: Getting to the Stars” workshop. It will be so much fun playing with the different colors and incorporating different weave structures too. I hope everyone will be able to attend!
