Members of the guild held a Needle Felting workshop at the Glen Elm library this past weekend. Marjorie lead the class in the basics of felting with a needle and provided a lot of inspiration including books and examples (many made by Wendy and Nicole). Participants were quite creative with their use of fibre. Overall it was a great experience for both parties to get together and play with fibre and new skills and have fun just being artistic. Thank you to the Regina Public Library and Marjorie for providing the supplies needed for the afternoon.
Participants Finished Objects:
Thank you to all who came out to our mini retreat on April 30th. It was a great success with full classes in spinning and weaving. Special big thanks to Sharon of Golden Willow who brought beautiful fibres to tempt us (and it worked!) Kathleen had some weaving supplies for sale for those who needed to stock up on their stash to continue their new skills they learned.
Thank you also to the Sherwood Village Library who provided us with all the supplies participants used and also a great space to hold our day of fibre! We hope to host more days like this in the future :)
Last but not least, thank you to our instructors and helpers. We are lucky to have so much experience in our guild and members who are willing to share their passion for fibre.
