First meeting of the Fiber Arts Bee (FAB)

from Karen Henry

The first meeting of the Fiber Art Bee (FAB) was held on Monday, October 15 at Atlantic Fabrics in Dartmouth, NS. The group is a mix of SAQA members and a few friends that are intermediate and advanced quilters who would like to share their knowledge with one another. These monthly gatherings will evolve into a forum for discussion of how effects are achieved through various techniques, critique sessions and show and share. On October 15, Susan Tilsley Manley of Durham, NS demonstrated how to make a small silkscreen, of everyday materials, that is portable and easily stowed away. Several members brought items to share with us, a few brought items they felt needed some creative collaboration, and others brought their own project to work on. Twelve fiber artists participated in this initial meeting and we hope to have a few more at the next session! Look for an update in November.
