Blending it all together
According to the dictionary, blending is the action of mixing or combining things together. In fibre arts, this means a lot more than blending fibres or colours, although that is certainly one part of blending. We also blend techniques and disciplines. Blending fibres for felting, spinning yarn for weaving, weaving stories and fibre arts together to create new tales to be told. Communities are blended together through fibre arts, with people teaching others across the world. We blend so many aspects of our lives and fibre arts in all we do.
This year at the Seminar we will explore some of the many ways to blend it all together. The Organizing Committee is hard at work planning an IN-PERSON Seminar. We will blend vendors and spin-ins and competitions and workshops and a banquet and a fashion show! Keep an eye out for the Spring Newsletter, where we’ll introduce our keynote speaker and workshop leaders.
