GUILD MEETINGS

Columbia Fiber Arts holds guild meetings in December, March, June, and September.

These meetings area a great way to get involved with CFG — a place to network with other fiber artists to share ideas and discuss common interests. (Lunches after these meetings usually offer even more opportunity to expand your network.)

Each guild meeting features a guest speaker — someone known nationally in the world of fiber art. The speaker also holds a workshop in connection with the guild meeting in March, June and September. Members may sign up for this workshop at a reduced fee.

She has been a studio artist in Boulder, Colorado for more than 30 years with more than 400 quilts to her credit. Her work is represented in prominent collections including the National Quilt Museum, the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, Kaiser Permanente, and many health care and corporate collections. She is the author of "Rooted in Tradition: Art Quilts of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum," many journal and magazine articles, and an instructor with Craftsy.com. She is a sought-after lecturer on the art quilt and a mentor to many art quilters.

Rosalie observes “My inspiration comes directly from the world around me and my life. I want to help my students feel excited by what they are able to do, and to develop a belief in their own abilities.”

 

“Living in Durban, South Africa gives me an exciting and colorful view of the world which I hope to share with anyone seeing my work or coming to my classes.”

This month we again go overseas— this time to New Zealand — for a virtual lecture from Lisa Walton.

 

In this one hour presentation, Lisa will take you on her creative journey and you will see how her work has developed over the years and the milestones and ‘leaps’ she has taken.

Lisa is a popular author of books for quilters and former president of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). She continues to explore new methods and has spent 18 years dying her own fabrics — she even sells a line of hand dyed and painted fabrics online.

 

Lisa has a passion for sharing her knowledge through teaching. In 2010 she was awarded the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for Quilting Teachers by the International Quilt Association in Houston USA.

We look forward to welcoming Lisa to our virtual guild meeting! You can read more about Lisa and her work on her website at https://lisawaltonartist.com.

SEPTEMBER 2021

September 8, 2021

9:00 AM -  

10:00 – 11:00 AM Guild Meeting

11:00 am – 12:00 PM Speaker

Congregation Neveh Shalom

2900 SW Peaceful Lane, 

Portland, OR 97239

We hope in September 2021 to welcome Kristy Kún felt sculptor extraordinaire, for our return to in-person meetings. (Covid-19 has proved a difficult challenge — so stay tuned for more information.)

Kristy observes  “My life as a craftsman began in a woodshop, transforming reclaimed and historic wood into finely crafted furniture. The skills I developed during this period are reflected in obvious ways in my current work, e.g. hand crafted frames, upholstery methods used in mounting felt, and in some less obvious ways…”

 

Ten years ago Kristy began the transition from wood to wool. The change in materials fostered a change in lifestyle; A quieter environment with materials that require more gentle and personal attention, rather than tools and industrial equipment. This allowed her to work closer to the home while raising her daughter and provided a studio environment that was a safer and friendlier place for visitors. She observes “I’ve taken this time to work slowly through my own ideas, learn from others, and develop a sustainable practice of my own in felt making.”

 

Kristy participates in a unique artists’ retreat, a Collab. Frogwood Collab is a group of roughly forty professional artists and makers who gather annually to work together for a week, sharing ideas and processes and creating outstanding works of art and craftsmanship. “Through the Collab, I return to my studio with fresh eyes and inspiration. My work is continually refreshed and evolving from the experience.”
