Tapestry Study Group Goes to SEFAA
On Tuesday, May 10th, The CHG Tapestry Study Group met in person for the first time since the pandemic began. The Group travelled to the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA) Center in Chamblee, GA to view the Square Foot Fiber Art Pin Up Show 2022 and to share recent tapestry projects in person.
We’re back in person!
Our May meeting was held in our newly renovated Room 1. It has been more than 2 years since we came together in one place. So great to see everyone. We are working on ways to learn from our online experiences and still make it possible for us to engage in a proper show-and-tell with the weaver's handshake. Phase 1 of the room is just about complete. Phase 2 will include more extensive digital presentation and hybrid experience equipment. Stay tuned and see you at our June meeting.

Turned Beiderwand with Karen Donde
Participants from Indiana, New York, Missouri, Georgia and Germany gathered on Zoom to work with Karen Donde from Asheville, NC to learn about Turned Beiderwand on 18-19th September 2021. Workshop participants learned that Turned Beiderwand is a type of double weave structure in which some “warp ends work as separate layers, others as tie-down ends” (Donde, 2017). Karen shared numerous images of her beautiful work using Turned Beiderwand, as well as historical examples.
