Guild Meeting   - Your 2024 membership dues are due today.

Sara Bixler of Red Stone Glen will share weaving samples as she discusses the use of different textures and

colors to produce different patterns using a rigid heddle loom.

Sara Bixler is the owner and resident instructor of Red Stone Glen Fiber Arts Center ( Sara has been teaching weaving for over 10 years and is the author of many weaving articles including articles found in the “Little Looms” journal.

“Sara has spent many years experimenting with color in weaving, focusing her studies on how color relationships are affected by yarn size, luster, sett and weave structure. She loves giving

students core principles to follow so they become more confident in their color decisions when designing new pieces.

Sara also strives to create new and different approaches to looking at plain weave fabrics through surface embellishments. Working primarily on a plain weave background, Sara enjoys the challenge of investigating everything from ancient techniques for decorating fabrics to the use of more modern day yarns produced for novelty type applications.
