Old Business Thank you to everyone that helped set up the Umpqua Show, it was very well received. The "River Runs Through It" pieces will be displayed next at the Sutherlin Library. We decided to keep the "Fins, Feathers" & the "Flabergast" pieces together, and to seek out other venues at which to show them. Tracy will be storing them for us. New Business The Bandon Art Retreat is scheduled for Mon, Tues, Weds. June 22 -24. Talk to Amy to commit to going, money is due at the May meeting, the $100 is very in expensive for a retreat, and only covers the cost of the facilities. We will wait until June to have a new challenge. Get your ideas together. We will have an informal challenge for June through Sept. Then a formal challenge, that we would like everyone to participate in, for next year's quilt show in April. May's meeting Sue will show us how she does the large circular art bowls. We are planning a wet felting workshop at Amy's in June, and a dye workshop with Meredith in July. More info to come. Jana has asked if we want to participate in the Oakland Quilt Show in August, she will get us a booth to display and/or sell items. Tracy & Ryan have volunteered some display boards. We agreed to do this. Jana will have more info, as it gets closer. Show & Tell craftcatcottage.blogspot.com We must all check this out for ourselves!! She has been busy with spinning some green dyed fibers, into a plied boucle yarn, and is knitting it into a vest for her daughter.

Everyone has enjoyed creating this collaboration, a cohesive challenge that everyone stepped up to, and did their best.
All these wonderful creations are the results of a Fyber Cafe challenge that stretched our imaginations, took us in new directions and helped us grow as artists. We hoped you enjoyed seeing them, please leave a comment, so we have some feedback.
