The Guild is working with Kansas City Hospice House to provide projects for family members to work on while sitting with hospice patients. Each packet (contained in a sealable plastic bag) should contain instructions and project-specific supplies. For example, small embroidery projects, coloring pages with colored pencils or crayons, small weaving project, etc. Please bring packets to any Weaver’s Guild meeting and turn them in to Jackie Kincaid. She coordinates this effort with the Hospice House.
The Weavers Guild encourages members to form study groups to foster fellowship, advance our weaving and fiber skills and expand our artistic expression. These study groups meet regularly.
Felting Study Group
- Each month we build upon the previous month’s technique. Contact Judy Santner if you are interested.
Tapestry Weaving Study Group
- The Tapestry Weaving Study Group meets monthly to foster friendship and learning. Our goal is to become familiar with tapestry weaving techniques and to complete several projects over the next year. We follow the lessons laid out in the book “Tapestry Weaving” by Kristen Glasbrook. All Guild members are welcome to join the group at any time. Contact Janet Meddings for time, location and required materials. Please note: This study group is on holiday break and will start meeting again on Jan. 18, 2018 and monthly thereafter.
A different program is presented at each monthly meeting of the KC Weavers Guild. These programs are designed to broaden our artistic skills and enrich our creative efforts. The following programs are planned for 2017.
Dec. 14: Gift exchange theme is a fiber-related piece (handmade or not) that that can be hung.
