Our new Guild Challenge for 2024 has been organized by Jill Leggio who will coordinate it for us this year. All members are encouraged to participate and the theme this year will be to Choose a photograph, painting, advertisement or some image which evokes a sigh of relaxation, a smile, a happy place.
This is your inspiration. Choose colors and/or patterns which represent this image.
Your submission must include the photograph or a photo of your inspirational image.
The guild challenge will commence at the May, 2023 meeting and conclude with a show & tell at the March 2024 meeting.
Every year, MWG hosts a Challenge which is based on a common idea or inspiration that guild members then apply to create a piece that is uniquely theirs. Previous Challenges have been based on specific colors, fibers or themes, but anything the committee can dream up is fair game!
You may apply the criteria to create a piece in any fiber-related field – weaving, spinning, felting, braiding, basketry, paper, or anything else you like. Think of something new and different and go for it. It’s NOT a competition…it’s FUN!
We share our Challenge pieces at the March Guild meeting and they are then displayed on our Guild table at the Florida Tropical Weavers Guild (FTWG) annual conference.
