Spend your Valentine's Day in the love of everything fibery! Last year this party was a huge success. Everyone brought what they were working on, and we chatted and shared and had a wonderful time!
Maille Andrade, fiber artist, will speak about the weavers and natural dyers she met during her recent trip through Indonesia.
Daniella Woolf will share her hilarious history growing up in a Hollywood family.
Iridescent fabric shimmers and glows, changing colors depending on how the light hits it. Different colors appear in the folds and pleats, adding surprising layers of color to fabric. To the uninformed it appears magical and difficult, but the truth is that weaving iridescent fabric is accessible to any handweaver who knows the tricks.
Bobbie Irwin has been teaching the techniques for weaving iridescence in person and through articles for more than ten years. She will just have finished a workshop on the subject with some of our own weavers and we hope some of those looms will still be in place so you can see what was done. If you would like to purchase a copy of Weaving Iridescence, her newest book, from Bobbi at the meeting, please email Mibs Somerville to ask her to reserve a copy for you. The price is $24.95.
