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.

Online Meetings

We continue to hold our monthly Guild meetings online using Zoom (thanks again, COVID), even as we look forward to being able to meet in person before too much longer!

In order to prevent Zoom hackers, we provide meeting links and information only in the monthly newsletter.

If you would like to attend, just look for the subscription form on the website to get in the loop!  Once you submit it, you’ll be on the list to receive those emails.  You can unsubscribe at any time.

And if you haven’t used Zoom yet, here’s information on how to join a Zoom meeting.  You can use a phone, tablet or computer, but be aware that the interface may look just a little different on different devices.

We hope to see you there!
