We are an active group of fiber art enthusiasts in Southern Arizona (Green Valley/Sahuarita). While many of our members weave, spin, and/or knit, we also bead, braid, felt, embellish, crochet, dye, and engage in just about any other fiber art out there. We have monthly programs from September to May, workshops on a variety of topics, and study groups in interest areas that meet monthly.
MEETING PLACE AND TIME
We generally meet at 10:00 am on the first Tuesday of each month September to May 10am at Good Shepherd United Church of Christ, 17750 S. La Canada Dr, Sahuarita
We extend an invitation to anyone interested in the fiber arts to join us. In addition to monthly programs/meetings, we have a large number of study groups, workshops, and community outreach activities.

March 7, 2017: Judith Shangold : “Weave-Knit-Wear”
Judith has been a weaver and knitwear designer for over 40 years. Her main focus now is designing woven garments that require little cutting and sewing. Some of her designs incorporate knitted elements to add shaping and style.
Her book, Weave • Knit • Wear, http://judithshangold.com features 30 garments and accessories, all created on a rigid- heddle loom.
Judith will share tips and techniques for creating fabric to turn into wearables along with numerous ideas from her book.
She will also bring samples of the clothing pictured in her book…the audience will be able to see close up and even try on these pieces.
