I have added a slideshow of photographs of our Fyber Cafe activities and textile art. I wanted to show how much fun we have at our various workshops and play days. Many photos are from our monthly Show and Tell at the meetings, and from our group challenges. The slideshow runs on the right hand column, try clicking on a photo and see if it will take you to the Picasa site, so you can see them in a larger format. It works for me, but them I am signed on. Then click the < or > on the sides of the photo to move forward or backwards through the pics. I hope this inspires you to try some of challenges or activities in the workshops. Stop by and join us if you are in the Roseburg, Oregon area. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of the month, 10am, at the Mercy Hospital Community Education Conference rooms, above Parkway Mobility and Supplies, next to Office Max on Stewart Parkway. Contact AMY, email is on the Facebook badge to the right, put Fyber Cafe meeting in the subject line.
