January 11th Guild Meeting. Don’t Miss It!
Explore the creative possibilities of eco-friendly wool dyeing with Julie Smith and Jeanne Schulz! Julie and Jeanne will share with us their hand dyeing process, showcasing a variety of projects from wool upholstered furniture to fabulous renewed vintage clothing — all achieved in a home/garage dyeing studio that’s simple to set up.
Julie and her mom, Jeanne, have been experimenting and collaborating through the years on many woolly, fiber works while running their small Etsy shop. You can see their work here:

About the Salem Fiberarts Guild
The Salem Fiberarts Guild (SFG) has been in existence since the nineteen forties. Our members, numbering around 90, meet monthly to learn and share the ways that fiber fits into their lives. Membership is open to anyone who has an interest in the fiberarts.
Meetings are held at the Willamette Heritage Center (previously Mission Mill Museum). The weaving studio is located on the fourth floor of the 1895 Thomas Kay Woolen Mill. Come early for coffee and social time at 9:30. At 10:00 our meeting will begin, starting with a lively and fun show and tell. Bring your latest fiber creation to share with the group!
