Tapestry on Tuesdays

On Tuesday I was finally able to attend the meeting of my tapestry group.  It was great to see everyone and to catch up on their projects.  Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera so I will have to post some pictures at  a later date.

The tapestry group is an study group of the South Jersey Guild of Spinners and Handweavers.  The instructors are Betsy Snope and Rita Landau who study with Archie Brennan and Susan Mafei and are members of the Wednesday Group.  We meet every Tuesday from 10am to 1pm throughout the year either in Betsy’s home or Rita’s home.  We bring our own tapestry looms and work on our individual projects until 1pm.  After that we retire to the kitchen where we eat our self prepared lunches and enjoy a cup of tea.  A lovely ending to a productive day.  Of course throughout the morning we share tapestry ideas and other discussions.

Since this the first time I have been back to the group since my return from Florida, I was surprised to learn that one of my Blog followers, Weavin Demon, is Mary Roth-Davies from my group. 

I was also happy to get positive feedback on what I had done so far on my Polychrome Mountain tapestry.  In addition, I got some helpful advice on how to proceed.  I really appreciate my support group and missed the interaction when I was in Florida for the winter.  I am really IMG_0378_0935 motivated now to get on with this tapestry.
