Needle Arts Group - February Meeting (2/20/19)

Tuesday, February 19, 2019 Needle Arts Group

For the February Needle Arts Study Group, we will continue our exploration of modular knitting with mitered square modules. The inspiration for our study of modular knitting is Ginger Luter's book, Module Magic. Bring 2-3 colors of a DK or worsted-weight yarn of any kind, appropriate-sized knitting needles (either dpns, straight, or circular), appropriate-sized crochet hook, scissors, and a yarn needle. Also bring any other needle arts project you are currently working on - we mix our topic (currently modular knitting) with sharing of our other current inspirations.

Beading Study Group, February 2019

Monday, February 18, 2019 Beading Study Group

We had one of the largest attendance for a meeting in a long time at Bead Study this month. Five new members joined our group. We had a great time using recycled paper for a bracelet project taught by Elisa Reutinger. Elisa is a multi-talented artist who recently joined our membership and we look forward having more classes instructed by her in the future. Bracelets were made using old book pages, recycled foil food packaging, magazines, maps, and various art paper. Strips of paper were cut to size and folded into a bow shape, then threaded onto memory wire.
