Felting Class



SATURDAY, MAY 22nd, 2010

9:00 A.M. - 4:00P.M.

located on the beautiful eastern shore of Maryland, just outside of Salisbury

Directions will come with your confirmation


Starting with a lovely two tone shimmering silk scarf we will then create unique designs with wisps of soft merino wool, perhaps accenting it with a touch of silk roving. After lay out is complete you will learn how to wet felt in a way to encourage the wool to work though the silk before hardening to a solid fabric. Everyone will leave with a beautiful, featherweight scarf to keep an evening chill at bay. Students should bring several old towels and wear comfortable shoes. No experience necessary. This class is somewhat physical, so students should have a certain amount of endurance. Workshop fee is $80.00 which includes morning coffee and danish, lunch and equipment use. Materials fee ($20.00) is additional paid the day of class.

Space is limited. Send registration form with a check ($80.00) to secure your spot. Mail to Sandy Hornung, This'll Do Farm, 3425 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury, Md. 21804. Email questions to: sandyhornung@msn.com

February Fiber Guild Meeting

During the last meeting we had a lot of discussion about what the fiber guilds goals are. What we are supposed to be doing. After much discussion it was decided that the goals of the Central Delmarva Fiber Guild would be as follows:
1) Promoting awareness of the Fiber Arts
A) Which includes quarterly public demos at such places as libraries, Barnes and nobles , historical reenactments, schools etc,
B) Donations of finished products to charitable organizations.

2) Promoting continued education of the Fiber Arts
A) Which includes classes, demos and sharing of knowledge within all the fiber arts.

3) Promote artists and businesses in the Fiber Arts
A) Including a yearly fiber festival and fiber arts show/contest with diverse categories of fiber arts.

It was also decided that at this time there would be no yearly dues.

Of course there is so much more to work out but we are off to a good start for 2010.

The next scheduled meeting for The Central-Delmarva Fiber Guild will be at Upper Room Studio on February 9th at 7pm for a demo of triangular weaving. Demo will show how to start as well as how to finish a project on the loom. Come join the fun!
There will also be a business meeting to decide the duties of the officers, elect officers for this year, and decide upon the status of the fiber guild whether it should be an independent nonprofit organization or if we should stay under the Purnell Museum. We still need all the input and help we can get so please, come and let us know what you think!

Fiber Guild Meeting

If anyone is interested in helping the Central Delmarva Fiber Guild please come to the meeting on Jan 11th at the Snow Hill Library from 7:00-9:00 pm.

Will the Fiber Guild continue? Hopefully, we'll know by the end of the night.

We need your ideas and input. We will be discussing the mission statement and goals of the Central Delmarva Fiber Guild.

What would you like to see the Guild do or become? Should we just meet together to work on projects? Should we be more interested in educating the public or service orientated? Should we try to schedule classes for our guild memebers? Should we even have dues? Should the meetings rotate from place to place. Come share your vision, ideas, expertise, and sense of humor.

Bring your questions and (hopefully) some answers to the meeting.
