|Darlene wearing her new jacket.|
First, the Guild meeting. The Show and Tell was a highlight. Here Darlene is wearing one of two jackets made from her Mother's woven fabric. The two jackets (or was it three?) were made for her and her sister(s?) from left over fabric. There wasn't enough fabric for each jacket but a seamstress cleverly designed it with other fabrics that matched the woven sections. Their Mother passed away and these jackets are a beautiful way to remember her by.
Kathy was on a high, having taken a whole week workshop with Jane Stafford. Here's a gamp she did from the Twills on 4 workshop. Here's a link to Jane Stafford's workshops on her web site.
We also brainstormed ideas for workshops: Colour and design; fibre baskets, nuno felting, felted slippers (recycling a sweater), a trip to Salt Spring.....
