7-7:30 pm is social time. Meeting starts promptly at 7:30 pm. Program: Barbara Decker will present a talk entitled Warp/Weave/Wear.
It has happened to all of us. We see a gorgeous work of art, beautiful fall folliage, a photo in a magazine. The colors and textures inspire us and we want to honor them somehow. Let’s weave something to wear. In this lecture we will explore the endless possibilities of using a variety of materials, weights, textures and colors in one warp- how the choice of weave structure and weft can change the look and feel of the finished fabric and how to add width to a warp already on the loom. The program will include a show of classic, comfortable, fashionable garments made from the
imaginative use of squares and rectangles. At her studio in Clinton, Barbara Decker weaves
beautiful clothes, blankets, and scarves. She mixes amazing colors and textures to produce original art. Barbara is also a member of our Guild and is a regular participant in the Show and Sale. I was honored to model one her sumptuous hand- dyed all silk rag jackets a couple of years ago. It was a joy to look at and to wear.
Location: Calvary United Methodist Church, 16 Ridge Place, Latham NY.
