Pocket Basket Workshop

When:  Saturday January 21, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.

Where:  Bailey Cove Library, 1409 Weatherly Plaza SE in Huntsville.

pocketbasket

We will weave a pocket basket for small tools, mail or “weeds,” about 8 inches wide x 7 inches tall x 2 inches deep with a handle on one side to hang on your spinning wheel, loom or the wall.  Learn how to handle reed, and how to shape a basket.  No basket making experience is required.

Bring a towel (basket making is wet work) and sack lunch, and wear comfortable clothes.  The instructor will bring all the tools and other supplies you’ll need to use during the workshop.

There will be a $5 supply fee, due at the beginning of the workshop.  Adults and youth ages 14 and up are invited.

Huntsville Main Library Christmas Tree Ornaments

The Huntsville Fiber Guild is planning to decorate a tree at the Main Library for the month of December.
The tree theme will be stars – woven, crocheted, tatted, knitted, etc. Choose your fiber technique and
make stars to draw attention to our tree. Please send us any patterns or ideas you have for stars made with
the fiber arts.
On Friday November 11, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., come to
the North Alabama Fiber Co-op Studio at #314 Lowe Mill, 2211 Seminole Drive, Huntsville, to help make
ornaments.

Three Fabrics – One Dyepot

Dye three one-yard pieces of cotton fabric with fiber reactive
dyes in one pot as demonstrated by Kathrin Weber in the
September workshop. The cost is $20 for each dyepot and
each participant will take home three yards of coordinated color dyed fabric or you can bring your own fabric/dyepot and just pay $5 for the chemicals for each pot, but your fabric may not turn out like the sample. Dyeing is messy so wear old clothes.

When: Thursday Nothree-fabricsvember 10 @ 5:00 p.m.
