October 2011

Barbara Harrison gave a fun program on color rubbing on fabric.  She brought crayons, dye sticks and rubbing templates, as well as her own hand dyed fabrics for us to use.  At right is an example Barbara made with crayons in the background and stenciling on top.

Below Kathy, Jeanne, and our newest member Patty Mayfield, are hard at work creating new art.

At right Pat, Jane, Elizabeth, and Patty are also learning this new technique.  Some of the supplies Barbara brought with her are visible on the table.

Kathy mentioned several possibilities for showing our Under-the-Sea exhibit next year. Jeanne is storing most of the quilts, and those who have them at home agreed to make them available on request. The quilts are two sided, but it will be up to the venue as to how they hang them (showing one side or both).

Jeanne suggested we bring our calendars to the November meeting to plan for next years programs.  In December we will have our Christmas party and gift exchange.  The gift exchange theme is a Haiku, poem, or nursery rhyme.

Jeannette will be unable to do the November program due to surgery (we all wish you a speedy recovery). Jeanne will take over the November program with a Christmas project.  She will email us with a supplies list.

The final photo Barbara's example of coloring on batik fabric. Very inspiring.
