March 16 Special Lecture by Sheila O’Hara

Posted by on Mar 9, 2014 in News, Programs

Sunday, March 16, 2014
Denver Art Museum, Sharp Auditorium, Hamilton Building

Registration begins at 10am. Lecture starts at 10:30 am. (There’s no charge for the lecture, and you don’t have to pay museum admission to go to it.)
All RMWG members and textile/fiber enthusiasts are welcome, so tell your friends!

A Special Bonus Feature!
1:30 – 2:30 pm, DAM Textile Dept, 6th Floor, Ponti Building

Last year the Denver Art Museum purchased Sheila O’Hara’s wonderful piece, “nite flite”. In addition to Sheila’s lecture (above), we have been invited to preview this incredible work with both Sheila and Dr. Zrebiec (DAM textile curator) in the conservation area of the new textile gallery.

For the timed viewings of “nite flite”, you do have to pay admission to the art museum, or else obtain a free pass from one of the RMWG members who have agreed to share their free passes. See the RMWG Programs & Workshops page for whom to call about free passes.

To register for one of the three timed 20 minute viewing sessions, email registrar@rmweaversguild.org with your name, email address and phone number. Tina Broderson, our guild registrar, will get back to you with the time of your viewing.

(For a complete schedule of events and other helpful info visit the RMWG website. Questions? Contact Dale Zitek, RMWG 2013-14 Special Events Coordinator, at specialevents@rmweaversguild.org.)

Donations at December Meeting

Posted by on Nov 23, 2013 in Programs

RMWG Dec food donation will go this year to EFFA (Emergency Family Food Assistance) in Boulder County. In light of the flooding and hardship of Boulder County (which includes communities like Jamestown, Longmont, Lyons, and Left-Hand Canyon) it seems appropriate to direct these donations to communities hard hit and in need of more support. Boxes will be placed in the back end of a car parked ground floor near the door of TACtile at the Dec meeting for donations.

The EFFA website asks for the following donations with some guidelines following:
Tuna, Hearty Soups, Chicken Broth, Mashed Potato Mix, Canned Fruit, Cereal, Peanut Butter, Toilet Paper, Large Diapers

We accept packaged goods that are up to one year past expiration.
We accept perishables in good condition with little to no bruising or damage.
We accept toiletries and household products, such as toilet paper, hair products, household cleaning products, laundry detergent, diapers and toothpaste.

If you would like to learn more about this wonderful organization here’s the link for their website: http://www.efaa.org/donate/.

September Shuttle Scuttle Available On Line

Posted by on Sep 6, 2013 in News, Programs, Workshops

Welcome to the new guild year!

The Shuttle Scuttle newsletter is now available on line (see the Newsletter page). You’ll need the new password to get to it. If you didn’t receive the email from our President, Bev Kajko, email
membershiprecords@rmweaversguild.org or
webmaster@rmweaversguild.org, and we’ll try to figure out what the problem is.

The Programs and Workshops committee has a fine series of programs and workshops for this year– we’ll be weaving baskets, crammed and spaced warps, warps with multiple layers, and Navajo rugs (small ones!). Later, we’ll be learning about painting on silk, marbling, nuno felting and surface design–check out the Programs and Workshops page.

The new yearbook (sometimes called the directory) will be available at the September guild meeting (or will be mailed to those who paid the fee for postage). It’s almost ready for printing and posting on the web page!

The proposed budget for 2013-2014 is available either in the September newsletter or on the web page in the drop down menu under Guild Information. Members will have an opportunity to discuss and vote on it at the September guild meeting.
