Eye for Fiber Newsletter - February 2007

Hi all!
Since some of our member's spam blockers consider me a moral threat (just kidding, Barb!) I have posted our newsletter here...

But first, a quick recap. January's meeting was stellar. We were led in another session of machine quilting, focusing on original designs and contemporary quilting. I learned so much and we even got a peppering of Ricky Tim's wisdom thrown in (not in person, obviously ;o). I found the whole thing very inspiring and helpful. Sorry I didn't get any pictures - I forgot my camera!

Next Meeting's Info:
Our next meeting is February 21st at the school at 5 PM (ish). For directions/address/map to the school, check the link in the General Meeting Information section below.
We will be doing acid dyeing with MX dyes. This will be mostly left over dyes from other dyeing projects, but we may try some fresh powder too to see what the different results might be.
WEAR OLD CLOTHES! I can’t tell you how many clothes I have ruined thinking I wouldn’t get messy :oP""
Bring any protein fiber, yarn or fabric to dye. That is wool, silk, soy silk, alpaca (any animal fiber), etc.
If you have a "dye" dedicated microwave or dye dedicated microwaveable containers, bring them too. Also anything you want for a mechanical resist; string, rubber bands (stinky), plastic clips, needle and thread for Shibori, etc.
An idea of what colors you might want to play with.
