NVWG Meeting Tuesday, October 26, 2021
Our October speaker is Mickey Stam, past President and member of the Weavers and Spinners Society of Austin, in Austin, Texas. She is the author of the book Innovative Weaving: A Guide for Study Groups, published in 2016.
Mickey is a weaver, a spinner, and a dyer and is Zooming in to talk about how to have, and be a member of, a successful study group. She has a master’s degree in the History of Decorative Arts from the Smithsonian Institution/Parsons School of Design and the Certificate of Excellence Level I from the Handweavers Guild of America.
With many of our members still feeling more comfortable “Zooming” into meetings, the guild is looking for more ways to engage our membership. Some other local, and not so local, guilds are now sponsoring study groups as one way of doing this. What are they all about? How do they work? What is my commitment? Lots of questions. Weavers and Spinners Society of Austin has had many successful study groups over the years. One of the study groups Mickey led was a study group on Innovative Weaving. Then she wrote a guidebook for other study groups to do the same.
This should be a great way to learn about how we can all move our weaving forward, in person or on Zoom, with our fellow guild members and other weaving enthusiasts.
