Old Business The "Weaving Challenge" is hung in the Sutherlin Library. Please stop by and see it. Demo for August, Vera will talk about her class she is taking, on "deconstructed screen printing." Sept. Crystal will talk about how to upload your photos to be printed onto fabric on a web site, and how she used the fabric to make her sliced up flower quilts. Oct. Crystal has a DVD on Kaffe Fasset's inspiring trip to India, and how this effects his colors and fabric design. We will watch this, equipment permitting. Sept. is "Quilt Country" in Benton County and the Corvallis/Philomath area. Anyone want to organize a field trip? Vera and SAQA will have work on display at the Student Union at the Oregon State campus. Gracie gave a report on the Elkton festival, she said it was a great success, they raised a lot of money for the music program, and our booth was the highlight of the event. Many kids enjoyed painting/drawing flags, and many came back for seconds. New Business An "Ice dyeing" workshop will be planned for Sylvia's late July/early August, for those of you who have missed out, and those who want to do more!

On Saturday several of us went to Elkton for a benefit music and art event, for the Elkton School Music program. We had a wonderful time, helping kids paint "Festival Flags" with stencils, markers, glitter, googly eyes and watercolor pencils and crayons.

On Tuesday we took a mid day field trip, out and about, our first stop was at Art 101 & Washed Away, South of town, only to find out they had moved into a store front in "Old Town." Further South we stopped at Wild River Wool Shop, in Langlois, Oregon. She had a wonderful selection of fleece, wool, dyed roving, and various specialty fibers, mohair, silk, and angora. She also had small packets of mixed colors for needle felters. Her framed needle felted picture, was textile art we could learn a lot from. She had made 3 Dimensional pictures of sheep, horses and dogs, that leaped out of the frame, with darling expressive faces.
