The highlights of our last meeting of the year were the Virginia Olson Competition and the election of officers.
The theme for the Virginia Olson categories was Fifty Shades. The weaving, spinning and other fiber process categories were completed in shades of the same color. The final category required the use of leftovers from previous projects, and using shades of the same color was not required.
Each year one weaving entry is chosen to receive the Audrey Stevens Award for Excellence. This award is given to a weaver whose project exemplifies Audrey’s high standards.
Karen Kitchen and Jan Gallagher were elected to a two year term as president and vice-president respectively.
Members will continue to meet on Thursdays for fun days, and the summer picnic meeting will be held on August 16 at Karen DeVries’s Alpaca Ranch.
