Our first meeting

We are excited to announce our first meeting of the Utah Rug and Fiber Guild and everyone is invited!  We have a fun day planned--it will be Saturday, November 6, from 9 am until 1 pm.  Activities will be:
  • Presentation of the free exclusive rug pattern for charter members of the Guild
  • We will be making the adorable wool button bracelets from the Hook-In trunk show (materials are free to members!!)
  • Color Class:  Basic Understanding of Color - How To Identify Colors, Mix Colors, and Use Color Wheel.  We will learn 6 words to describe any color in the world; learn how to mix any color (by actually mixing colors); and we'll paint our very own color wheel.  In addition, we'll learn how to place all Cushing colors onto the color wheel, and learn how to choose mother/toner colors.
  • We will also give a sneak peek of the great things we have planned for our early spring retreat in 2011!
Cost for this meeting is FREE for guild members, and $10 if you just want to come and play.  There is still time to join as a charter member, you can join that day or subscribe here!
Important!  Please RSVP so we can be sure to have enough supplies (no need to reply if you can't make it, we'll miss you though!). We will be keeping you busy this time, so you won't need your hooking stuff.

Our Latest Hook-in!

The Fifth Utah Hook-in was a great success! We very much enjoyed the company, the vendors, the goodie bags, and the demos! And thank you so much to everyone who joined as charter members of the Utah Rug and Fiber Guild. If you still need to join, please click on the tab above.

One of our demos was by Janet, who showed us her fabulous handmade purses made from felted sweaters, and also examples of needle felting and wet felting. We learned so much--thank you, Janet!

Here are the links to the resources she mentioned:
