Call for Proposals and Vendors

As we look forward to seeing a lot of ‘fiber people’ in November at the KAWS (Kansas Alliance of Weavers and Spinners) conference in Augusta, we are ready to take proposals for hands-on sessions and vendor applications!

We are looking for instructors to propose 1 and 2 hour fiber-related breakout sessions on Friday afternoon, Nov. 5th and Saturday, Nov. 6th.  Get more information and fill out the online form before the April 30 deadline!

Shopping is always a big draw for conference attendees, and the Saturday vendor area will also be open to the public.  There is a limited area for vendors, so we’re looking for a nice variety of fiber-related products for buyers to browse.  Vendors, please fill out the form to request your spot!

Fiber & Equipment Sale March 6

Here are just a few of the many fiber-related items for sale on March 6th!  Drop in at our studio at 751 George Washington Blvd. any time between 10 am and 4 pm. 

Help keep everyone safe by wearing your mask.

You’ll find lots of fiber, yarn, tools, equipment and many other items for sale at very reasonable prices.  And the inspiration is free!!

GUILD MEMBERS – If you would like to sell your fiber-related items, please coordinate with Paula Smith ASAP.  Plan to bring your items and stay to help (don’t just drop them off)!

Plan to spend some time browsing through all the other vendors in the building, because it’s also the Magnolia Charm Market.  In case you’re not familiar with it, that is the Wichita craft fair that is in a different place each month – and this time it’s at Studio|School.  So after you have checked out our sale, wander the whole building to discover other beautiful things.

Color Inspiration Challenge – Birds

This (first annual?) color challenge was a fun way to work individually on a shared idea when we can’t get together!  We invited anyone who was interested to ask for a randomly-selected bird photo to use as color inspiration for any kind of fiber project.  

The results were varied and beautiful – even those that were not finished!  Some people went the extra mile and created actual birds!   They were first shared at the February Zoom meeting, and several have also been shared in our Facebook group.  (Ask to join!  Guild membership is not a requirement.)

Here are the projects that have been shared so far, each paired with its inspiration photo.  We’ll continue to add as pictures come in, so if you participated, please email your photo(s) to wichitaweavers@gmail.com.
