*****************************************

From February’s meeting: Each month we have a Challenge Project, proposed by a member. It is designed to get our creative juices flowing – perhaps in a new direction. Last month’s challenge was, “What does February mean to you?”

I did not want to make another heart. I have woven several and I wanted to exercise another aspect of fiber art besides weaving. I found this sample of woven fabric, red and white, in my stash and hand paintd my interpretation of February as the month of Aquarius, the water bearer. I would like to show you what else was prersented at the meeting so if you were there, please photgraph your work and send it to me.

Our Challenge Project for the month of March is 3-D. Make something 3 dimensional and bring it to the meeting. Be sure to photograph your work!

Our Monthly Program presenter for March is Nancy Billings.

Our round robin Fiber Book is underway! We have 5 committed participants and 5 colors. Do you want to intitate a book? Call Pamela for details.

World Wide Knit in Public Day is happening at PAMM on June 10. We will, mercifully, be inside this year! Stay tuned and spread the word.
