around the world find that they are not within easy reach of other fiberphiles.
As technology evolves, we have ever-increasing opportunities to connect with
other fiber artists through Ravelry, Facebook, and websites such as Spinning Daily. We can Google techniques
and equipment or download DVDs of our favorite instructors.
Can you have a
guild experience via the Web? In 2002, the
was "established to
meet the needs of fibre and textile artists unable to be involved in their
local guilds." The guild has grown by leaps and bounds and now brings over
400 members from around the globe together into an active organization.
Meetings and workshops are held electronically on the guild's members-only Yahoo! Group. The program for this month is Designing Knitwear,
led by Liz Lovick. A full schedule is available on the guild
website. More information about Liz's workshop can be found on her blog.
The projects shown at left are from last year's Festive Exchange. Members created notebook covers for the December exchange. The theme for 2012 is bags. Check out the Gallery page for more beautiful, inspiring examples of guild members' work.
