OCTOBER MINI WORKSHOP - Indigo Dying
Cynthia Bohnenblust will share her knowledge of indigo dyeing with us in October at Hinke Schroen's house. Cynthia will have the indigo pots fed and ready to go at 9:30am. Participants should have their projects prepped and ready to go into the pots - if you have any questions about the prep part, contact Cynthia with your questions.
NOVEMBER MEETING - COE EXAMINERS MADELYN VAN DER HOOGT AND SUZIE LILES
We're excited to have the two examiners for the HGA Certificate of Excellence in Handweaving, Madelyn van der Hoogt and Suzie Liles, available to talk to us about the process of the exam and what they look for in the submissions for the COE. If you're interested in pursuing a COE, or are just amazed by those who do, this will be a great opportunity to learn more about this wonderful learning program from the Handweavers Guild of America.
The Dallas Handweavers and Spinners Guild is dedicated to promoting the art of weaving and the craft of fiber work through education, member activities and mutual support. The Guild promotes fellowship among members with bi-monthly meetings, educational workshops and community demonstrations. The DHSG biennial juried show gives each member an opportunity to show off their latest treasures. We invite you to join us and experience the camaraderie of our members and the interesting topics at one of our general meetings.
Guild members meet odd-numbered months (January, March, May, July, September and November), usually on the first Saturday at 9:30 am, at The Point, Center for Arts and Education on the campus of the CC Young Memorial Home, located at 4829 West Lawther Drive, in East Dallas near White Lake. We enjoy friendships, old and new, and learn from speakers on a wide range of subjects and areas of interest to our members. Each meeting presents a different topic, many times a hands-on topic, and each year our program chairperson tempts members to experiment with a new range of ideas to explore.
If you currently live in North Texas, or plan to visit our area, please join us at one of our regular meetings, or sign up for one of our workshops or special events. For more details, contact us!
