Expect a convergence of media and technique; an on-going dialogue @ what is found/sustainable/inspiring. 4 days and nights jam-packed with… learning, pondering, exploring, creating, – maybe even collaborating. Nature. Eye-candy. Long walks. Deep talks. (No beds to make. No meals to cook. And no cell phones.)

NOTE: Maximum: 20 Makers. You’ll have lots of questions. So will we. We aim to gather an eclectic and compatible group . Call 360-568-7709 to chat – and possibly register.

It’s SPRING!!! Time to clean out your studio, your book shelves, your supplies!

Would you like to par down some of the items in your studio you never use, have duplicate copies or never-to-be-used yarns/material/notions?  How about doing it and benefiting a great local fiber arts program and getting to get a tax write-off at the same time?

What to donate

  • Books
  • Tools and equipment. Please identify what it is for if it is not obvious.
  • Dyes and paints IF they are still usable and half remains in the container.
  • Threads and yarns, IF there is enough to be used.
  • Fabrics, at least a quarter of a yard for commercial fabrics or any size scraps for hand-dyed material. Please mark with yardage and width for 1/4 yard and above.
  • Usable art supplies.

You can Bring your donations this Saturday, May 9 to the CQA/SDA meeting and Christina Fairley Erickson will take them for you.  Please make a note of your name, address and resale value of the donated goods, if you’d like a tax receipt sent to you.

Then, put the Summer Solstice Supply Sale on your calendar!  Saturday and Sunday, June 20 & 21, 2015, 10-5, at Gwen Lowery Studio, 129 W First, Seattle, WA (near Seattle Center.)

Now is your chance to clean your studio, pass on the unused treasures, find great additions at fantastic prices, and support the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts, as all proceeds from the sale will go to the Center.*  If you can’t bring your items this Saturday, you can arrange to drop them off at Gwen’s studio in Seattle or the Gail Harker Center in La Conner.
