Reminder that our 2013 Old Trail Town Challenge is due at the February meeting. These are to be 18" x 24" horizontal orientation. These pieces will travel to various venues for exhibit in the coming months.
Our new 2014 Textile Art Project challenge is due in September, and this was revisited as some members wanted more choices of techniques to use. For this challenge please choose two techniques that interest you. One can be a technique you are comfortable with, and the other should be trying something new. These projects will be 18" x 24" vertical orientation. (Since I wasn't at the meeting, I am hoping I interpreted this right. If not, please revise this, or let me know and I will revise it).
Our first Learning Challenge, is "Landscape". Interpret this any way you want, and bring a small piece (12" x 12") to the February meeting. This is a good time to try new techniques or refine your old favorites.

This has "gone viral" and is being shown around the world.
Marybeth provided the program with a demo of Golden products to be used with art and fiber art.
It has been requested that in the future, members please RSVP whether or not you will be attending the meeting. This will help the program coordinator for each month know how much material (copies, etc) to bring.
