Woven Woods: Of Roots and Thread
Lorraine was introduced to fabric arts at an early age which led to a full-time career in art textiles. She graduated with a BSc in Agriculture, majoring in Ornamental Horticulture and has been studying developments in tree research since graduating. Combining her love of fabric and science Lorraine creates images in fabric using raw edged machine appliqué techniques and embroidery to create wall hangings and framed pieces inspired by biology, mythology and symbolism of trees.
Joining us from the beautiful Niagara Escarpment Lorraine will share her presentation about the making and science behind the Woven Woods exhibition which will be at the Homer Watson Gallery from May 21 - August 29, 2021. This promises to be an interesting evening!

Open Sewing Days
Our Open Sewing Times are continuing each Monday afternoon from 2 to 4 pm. We continue to share social time, great conversations and laughter – all things that are so good for the soul right now. Come when you can, leave when you wish. We are enjoying a great time together. The link is in the February 12 Update.
There will also be a Saturday Open Sewing Day on April 24.
Sewing Together, But Apart
Our Sewing Together, But Apart Days provide an entire day of sewing activities, including sharing tips and strategies, socializing as well as having guest speakers join us for part of the day. To help cover some of the cost of the guest speakers, a charge of $10.00 is included for the afternoon guest speaker. With the possibilities Zoom provides, we are able to access guest speakers from near and far. We look forward to having you join us. Guild members are invited to come for all or part of the day.
