Fiber Arts Day

A new year and time for new (and old) projects!

Join us January 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Education Room of the Cordova Center for a day of creating, collaborating, and companionship.  Bring your projects, spinning wheel, loom…whatever you want to work on ...and spend as much time as you wish with the Fiber Arts Guild.  There will also be a swap table where you can leave things you no longer need and perhaps find something new. Bring a snack to share, if you would like, and look forward to a nice day.

There will be a short business meeting at 1 p.m. with a Gansey group meeting immediately after.

We hope to see everyone there!

A busy (but fun) week for the guild!

Mark your calendars!!

This Sunday, November 22nd, we have a very important Cordova Fiber Arts Guild meeting from 2-4 PM at the Mayor's Conference Room in the new Cordova Center.  We will be finalizing the details of our first spectacular fundraiser, Mamma Mia the Sing-A-Long!

There are two chances to catch Mamma Mia the Sing-A-Long on Friday, November 27th!  We will show a matinee at 3 PM at the Cordova Center Theater geared for all ages and another evening show at 7 PM geared for ages 12 and up!  Dessert will be available for purchase in the lobby at both showings.  Come out and enjoy a fun day/night on the town with your local fiber arts guild!

If you are interested in joining the guild, please send us an email at or, better yet, come to our meeting on Sunday!  We hope to see you all!

First Meeting!

Our first meeting was a load of fun! It was very inspiring to see what everyone was working on and discuss what is coming up for our guild. We have a number of very new knitters in the guild and it will be exciting to see them learn and grow as they continue to expand their knitting skills.

Our next meeting will be November 22nd, more information to come closer to the date.

Here are a few pictures from the fun yesterday.

Here is Shannon (she just learned to knit this summer!) showing off her color work cowl and a little baby sweater for a friend. 

Erica (another very new knitter!) is working on the same baby sweater for her daughter. 

Shannon is really trucking on her Fisher lassie sweater.

Check out the band on the dress Janet is making for her daughter! Gorgeous work.

Thanks again to everyone who was able to join us and we hope to see you all in November!

If you would like to get email updates about what the guild is up to, please send us an email to cdvfiber (at) gmail (dot) com and we will add you to the list. (replace the at with @ and dot with . )
