As our membership grows so do the interests of the members and that is reflected in some of the new items that were included in Elegant Threads and More. Several of our members are interested in working directly with raw fibers to create silk or wool creations. In addition to nuno felted pieces the sale included silk fusion lights and wet felted bags and slippers.

The weavers had been busy with some spring weather related items. Pieces in neutral or natural coloured yarns were popular. The scarves on the right are so light you can see through them.
We still had plenty of eye catching items that expressed the maker's love of colour. Many of the items were hand dyed by the maker using a range of natural and synthetic dyes and a range of techniques from immersion dyeing to hand painting.

We are happy to report that did happen. Proceeds from the sale will help cover the rent on our studio and let us continue our guild programs.
Thank you to the sale committee and all their helpers, both members and their conscripted family members. Many hands are required to put on an event of this quality. If you were able to attend we hope you enjoyed the visit. If you missed it look for us at Qualicum Beach Family Days in May and at Art in Action in July.
