The Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild's annual event, Fiber Feast, is held annually at the Washtenaw Community College/Ann Arbor on the third Saturday in April.
There are descriptions on how I make purses in the August 6, 2014 blog article and glass buttons in the January 4, 2015 blog article.
What a delight to spend the day with friends! Jeanne Sarna is a long time friend and a "partner in (fiber) crime"! Here she is modeling a garment she made for the recycle runway event. She turned an unused jacket and upholstery fabric scraps into an art-to-wear vest.
Carol Furtado, another wonderful fiber artist, is standing at her table of gorgeous scarves, jackets and jewelry
This year I entered several jackets, a coat, and a free-form crocheted sweater. Some jackets were dyed, some discharged, and one was woven.
Free-form crochet sweater of wool, cotton, and some novelty yarns.
I've been a knitter for a long time, but Sandra introduced me to the fun of free-form crochet!
Details about making this sweater is in my January 2015 blog article.
The orange coat and brown jackets are made of cotton fabric that I discharged with a bleach/water mixture.
This process is discussed in my September 2, 2014 blog article.
I'm just learning how to weave and I'm really enjoying the process. This chenille jacket is woven stripes of brown, black, and beige with a little green and orange for accents.
Details about this jacket are in the May 6, 2014 and the May 15, 2014 blog articles.
Beautiful flowers graced the luncheon table and a wonderful jazz combo played for us. All in all - a very good day!
