Our next meeting is planned for Tues, December 2nd, at The Fiber Loft. This is our combined Nov & Dec meeting, so as not to conflict with holiday schedules. Fellow member Carol Vales will conduct a hands on program on basket weaving. Everyone will be able to make a small “ornament style” basket to take home.
Here’s what you should bring:
paper towels or cloth to keep your space dry (The reeds will be soaked in water. )
Small weight or canned good, to hold spokes in place at the beginning.
Also at this meeting, member Dorothy Solbrig will have an assortment of items available for sale from Mayan Hands, a fair trade organization. Mayan Hands makes some wonderful woven and beaded items, great for holiday gifts! http://www.mayanhands.org/
