March Meeting – Photography Program, 28Mar2017!

Our March meeting will be on Tuesday, 28 March.  The program will be “Photographing your Handwovens”, presented by Paul Sarapas. Paul is a teacher and department coordinator at Lincoln Sudbury high school. He is also the entrepreneur behind “Every Picture is a Story”, selling prints and greeting cards from his adventures, both locally and around the world.  His website is http://www.sarapasdesign.com

Paul will demonstrate and give tips on the best ways to photograph your hand made pieces.  This is a great opportunity to spruce up your photography skills to capture great pictures to accompany your NEWS fashion and gallery show entries!

This meeting will be held at The Fiber Loft.  Social and library time will begin at 7pm.  Business meeting will start promptly at 7:30, followed by the presentation.  Hope to see everyone there!

This from our good friend Susan:

Because of the credit card problem I am ending registration for the time being. All course selections will be cleared before we begin again. A new day and time will be announced through your guild reps and on the website and this Facebook page with at least 24 hours notice. Any payments that did go through will be refunded. I apologize for the difficulties and the frustration. Testing did not show this problem and we are not sure why it is occurring. – Susan Targove, NEWS Seminar Registrar

Tonight’s meeting is still on for 7pm!

Tonight’s meeting is still on for 7pm!

With the questionable weather today, we want to confirm that our meeting is still on for this evening.

This month’s program will be a very social one.  We ask everyone to bring a sample of your “other art” projects.  Most weavers dabble in other forms of art, be it knitting, spinning, crochet, quilting…or even some non-fiber artistic expressions.  This is the time to share these crafts!  It’ll be a great way to get to know your fellow guild members.  Don’t have an “other art”?  Come anyway!  We hope that this meeting will be very inspirational.
