Stock Show Success!

Posted by on Jan 28, 2013 in News

Audrey and I want to thank every one who volunteered to demonstrate at the 107th National Western Stock Show this year. I got a lot of really good feedback from many people this year.  It it truly  gratifying that people are still fascinated by what we do as weavers and spinners!  All of you did a wonderful job sharing your craft and representing our Guild. I hope all of you enjoyed it and will be ready for next year.

Special thanks go out to Tanya Swegler for creating a display showing how fibers from a variety of animals spin up into varying textures of yarn!  The display was a valuable addition to our table at the Stock Show!  A big thank-you too goes to Nancy Irlbeck of the CSU Ag program, who donated one of her fleeces for our use at the Stock Show…many young people went home with a tuft from her fleece!

If you have any comments or suggestions please let me know and I will relay them to the powers that be.  Meri Moller mermoe@aol.com

Celtic Concert Presented by Nadine Sanders

Celtic Concert Presented by Nadine Sanders

Sunday Feb 17, 2014 at Denver Puppet Theatre, 3156 W 38th Ave, Denver 80211, 7:00 p.m.

 

Nadine Sanders calls herself the singing weaver for several reasons.  In solo performance The Singing Weaver plays the fiddle, and sings a cappella while costumed in her hand-woven creations. Nadine blends the playing of Celtic fiddle tunes with her clear, sweet voice singing traditional ballads and contemporary folks songs.

Artistic Statement: Music and weaving go hand in hand for me. Even as a small child I made treasures with my hands and sang in public. I strive to use sound, words, rhythm and texture to reach people. The combined arts have a powerful, lasting effect. The rhythm inherently linked to weaving and making music is the touchstone to my creative energy.
