Each meeting will begin with a Business Meeting, then a Show and Tell, followed by the program for that month.
February 12th, 2022 – Mary Rose Mug Cozy by Ann Kingstone. Pattern is free on Ravelry.
March 12, 2022 – Continuing the Mary Rose Mug Cozy. Annual dues are $10 and are due in March.
April 9, 2022 – Design Your Own Hat. With help from Veronica Carey, members will design and create their own knit, crochet, etc. hat pattern using Yarn Standards to help with sizing. This Craft Along (CAL) begins in April with the brim. Dig through your stash for DK, worsted, etc., select a circular needle (DPNs, 16″ circular, Magic Loop), and figure out your gauge (sts per inch). You can use whatever technique you would like, stripes, colorwork, brioche, cables, lace, etc. In May and June we will continue with the body and crown of the hat. You may also choose to do a top-down hat. We discussed making blue hats for Hat Not Hate at the meeting, please visit their website for more information.
May 14, 2022 – PFFG Destash/Restash Day from 11 am – 3 pm. You must claim a table ahead of the May meeting.
June 11, 2022 – WWKIP (World Wide Knit in Public Day!)
Beginning in January 2022, the Paulding Fine Arts Association will host the first Friday of each month as a day (11-4) open to any fiber artisan that wants to drop in and work on their weaving, knitting, crochet, spinning, etc. in a friendly, low-key setting.
Please bring all your own equipment and supplies. There is no formal instruction, although students in upcoming weaving classes can begin on their project early with the teacher’s help. Great for those learning how to warp a loom.
PFAA is located west of the courthouse complex on Hwy 278 at Seaboard Drive, near the Ace Hardware and Piece of Heaven Bakery. The address is 105 Village Walk, Suite 181 (around the back side behind the bakery).
Feel free to bring your treats from the Piece of Heaven bakery and coffee shop. We’re all into getting that fiber fix in multiple ways.
The Georgia Mountain Needle Arts Festival will be held April 22-24, 2022 at the Gilmer County Civic Center in Ellijay, GA. For more information please refer to the GMNAF website at https://georgiamountainneedleartsfestival.com/.
