May CHG Meeting
Date: May 18, 2013
Karen Donde of Sutherland Weaving Studio in Ashville, NC, will present the program at the May meeting of the Chattahoochee Handweavers' Guild. Her subject will be "Spice Up Your Recipe Weaving." There is a hand out available ($3) to accompany the lecture, so all of us poor note takers can breathe a sigh of relief! Karen has been a weaver and workshop leader for a number of years, starting in New Jersey and serving as an officer in the Mid-Atlantic Fiber Guild. She has received the HGA Certificate of Excellence, Part 1, and has studied in Haywood Community College's fiber program. You can see her beautiful scarves, linens, and yardage and learn more about her on the Sutherland Studio web site, so take a look.
Mini-workshops are free to CHG members and are held two or three times a year after regular meetings. They last an hour or two and cover a wide variety of topics — from beginning spinning to kumihimo to sewing with handwoven fabric. Regardless of the topic, mini-workshops are always interesting and enjoyable.
Mini-Workshops are approximately 1 hour in length and will begin at 1:00 PM following the regular CHG meeting. Mini-Workshops are free to all CHG members.
Suggestions for presenters are always welcome. Email: email@example.com
