The VFAG fund raising journal is ready!

Copies will be available at the September 6th General Meeting

‘A Fiber Art Journey’ will be a constant companion.  Each of its one hundred pages has ‘Inspiration, Tips, Tricks and Sage Advice’ to make it a perfect source book as well as a gift for all your fiber friends.  You’ll find the spiral bound journal the perfect place to write notes for projects and workshops, store swatches, yarn samples and all those ‘idea’ clipping from magazines.  Available in 10 colors @ $15.00 each.

Bring your checkbook or cash!

Journals will be available at meetings until all are sold.​

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

MEMBERSHIP

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.

UPCOMING PROGRAMS

Members will showcase their summer projects and accomplishments.  Please bring examples to show and share as you tell us all about your summer adventures….fiber related and other.


October 4, 2016: “Deconstructed Screen Printing:  Diva Duo Divulge Details”
Our own guild members (and fiber enthusiasts!) Marie Gile and Sharon Laws will share their love of a relatively new dye printing process, Deconstructed Screen Printing, developed by noted fiber artist Kerr Grabowski. Unique and unusual images emerge with this printing technique! The process makes use of the resist properties of thickened dye that has dried on a screen, and is then used in printing images that are very natural, spontaneous and organic. Sharon and Marie will discuss how it all works and share examples of the entire process — and their results — in a PowerPoint presentation. They will also have a lot of examples on hand for you to see
.
