June Guild Meeting

What: Creating Designer Paper Beads, by Catherine Marchant
When: Saturday, June 8, 2019, 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m.
Where: Catherine Marchant’s home, 554 Lakeview Drive, Alpine

Catherine Marchant has again invited us all to her lovely home in Alpine. If you haven’t been to her home yet, you will want to see her Navajo rugs! In the morning, Catherine will teach us how to make beautiful designer paper beads that can be used for jewelry and other uses. If possible, please bring colored papers that you like from magazines and catalogs. Other supplies will be at the meeting.

The bead workshop will be followed by a potluck lunch and Show and Tell. Please bring a dish to share and your projects for Show and Tell. The potluck lunch will start around noon, so if you are not able to make the morning workshop, come join us for the potluck lunch and Show and Tell.

Beautiful free yarn for weavers: Former Guild members Kathy Kankainen and Tina Burton have donated many beautiful yarns from their weaving stashes to Guild members. These special yarns are from several decades ago and are all made in America and Europe. The yarns will be displayed from noon until 2:00 for Guild members to take home and love!

Upcoming Events

  • September 14 (Saturday): At our September meeting, Shahar Boyayan will teach us how to make felted birds. We will felt in the morning and share a potluck lunch and social time together. More to come! Mimi Rodes
