Also for December, we will do an art/textiles garage sale, bring things you want to sell/share or give away. Clean out your studio for a New Year. January we will do Kumihimo - Japanese braiding with Corienne. February will be making fabric/paper beads with Sara, she will also show us how to coat them with embossing powder and a heat gun. We are planning a workshop at Pat W.'s to make the patchwork sweat shirts that Sara showed us, TBA for January. Wal-Mart has a great selection of sweat shirts in beautiful colors, right now. Buy one size larger, as we will be cutting the seams off and re-sewing them smaller. We also encourage any of our new artists to make something for our challenge "She Flies with Her Own Wings" these will be displayed at the Umpqua Valley Quilters' Guild show in April. Any Technique, any size up to 20" per side. New Business Several of our members have items at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center Holiday Gift shop, stop by and check out the goodies.
