December WAV Meeting - Christmas Party

For the December meeting, we celebrate with a feast. Everyone brings something to share.
The gift exchange theme this year was "Time". So, participants made a gift related to the theme to be exchanged through a random drawing. This is always a lot of fun.

Pegee opened Kathy H's package (Kathy was not able to attend the meeting, but had a gift for the exchange).

Jeanne got the gift created by Kathy H.

Wanda got the gift created by Jane.Kathy L. got the gift created by Jeanne.

November WAV Meeting

The November WAV meeting kicked off with a tulle grab. Cynthia brought a box of tulle that had been gifted from a manufacturer. More than she could use or give away, it was offered to the group members.

The next stage of the tulle give away is Salvaged Threads - a small quilt challenge with an entry deadline of January 6. Here is the link to the details.

Denise's Show and Tell

Pegee's Show and Tell

Much of the meeting involved self jurying for a group show.
Everyone brought several pieces, which were spread on the table. We selected our favorite two from each artist. These will be delivered to the curator.

Kathy offered a wonderful program. First, she shared the results of her bleeding tissue paper dyeing.

Next, she shared some of her felting projects.

And brought supplies for each of us to make a felted ornament!

Special thanks to Jane who took all the pictures and therefore isn't shown in any of them.
