Happy Holidays from all the members of the Four Corners Weavers Guild!
In August the Guild sponsored a workshop on pickup patterns on the rigid heddle loom led by Liz Gibson. Some spent Friday night at Hesperus Camp and the workshop was held there on Saturday. It was a great learning experience and fun was had by all. Check the Who We Are for more pictures.
The Cortez area fiber artists joined the Durango weavers for a visit to Studio &. They viewed a creative tapestry exhibit by Finnish fiber artist Aino Kajaniemi. They joined in a Skype visit with the artist and learned about her weaving methods and life.
