President's Post
It’s a New Year of creative opportunities! We have been planning for a few in-person events in the New Year that can enhance our existing virtual events. We currently have tentative plans for an in-person spinning workshop utilizing local talent as well as a winter/spring fiber retreat. Both of these events will have COVID- 19 protocols detailed in advance. Please watch for updates!

Our study groups are continuing in the month of January. The study group activities are organized by members with a special interest and want to learn more about the subject and share the journey with others. Please consider joining a study group on Tessellations, Saori Weaving, Band Weaving or Churanunu.

The Make-It Day at the Mt. Vernon Commons House will be held on Saturday January 15, 10AM – 2PM. This is the day that you can bring your projects to work on and visit with other fiber enthusiasts.

I hope you can join at least one of these activities!
