November 2016 Workshop

Zoe Lianga will be doing a Trunk Show and Workshop.  She is a local fibre artist.  I have seen some of her stunning wet-felted quilts.  She offers lots of workshops in her home year round, and we are lucky to be getting her for a 3-hour workshop where she will show us how to make mittens.  It may seem to be a fairly simple item, but it is only a starting point to so many bigger items once the method is learned.
