Dallas Area Fiber Artists features 12×12 Quilts


Dallas Area Fiber Artists – August 25th meeting!


“SAQA Texas Experience”

A traveling show of 36 small art quilts created by Texas members of Studio Art Quilt Associates will be the focus at DAFA’s August meeting. Come to The Point on Monday, August 25, to see the 12” x 12” quilts and hear DAFA’s own Heather Pregger talk about the varied styles and techniques of the artists who created them. The quilts have been exhibited in Savannah and Houston and will travel to other points around Texas in the coming months. DAFA is very fortunate to have access to this special show! The regular meeting begins at 6:45 p.m.

Mini-workshop for August

Come at 5:30 to create your own Spirit Doll in a mini-workshop led by Valery Guignon. Make a simple wire armature for your doll, and dress her with fabulous dyed silk scraps from Guignon Design Studio. Use shells or beads to create your doll’s hands and face. Embellish with feathers, ribbons, and whatever you bring to enhance her. See details here about the kit fee, etc.

Monday’s Show & Tell

Bring your latest creations for Show & Tell. You are welcome to bring as many as you wish, but in the interest of time, please plan to limit your description to one favorite. There will be plenty of room to display them all on the tables at the back of the auditorium and plenty of time after the meeting to chat with members interested in your work.
