Linda Temple will present the inspiring story of long-time FAO partner organization, Weave A Real Peace (WARP), along with some timely information about the Global Market in OKC that purchases many of its products from groups that are connected to WARP. The Global Market is open in November and December and is staffed by volunteers, with all proceeds benefiting the La’Angum Learning Centre in northern Ghana, founded by Alice Iddi-Gubbels. Many long-time FAO members know Alice through weaving and her charitable work and have been involved in staffing the Market.

November 9 November’s program in OKC is ALL ABOUT ALPACAS.  Join us to listen and learn from Dr. Steve Hull and Janice Robinson, both of whom own alpaca ranches near Oklahoma City.  There is a whole world of interesting topics surrounding these unique, beautiful animals, from animal husbandry, breeding for fleece quality and color grades to differences in varietal fleece products available to fiber artists.  Come see and feel the yarn, fleece, and wearables available and hear about the needle-felting tools used to create some of them.  You’ll be glad you did!

Meeting Schedule, Tulsa chapter

October 10

Katrinka Booth, one of our newest members, will give a presentation about her fiber art. She uses her imagination, thread, and her sewing machine to create beautiful free motion stitched designs and scenes on fabric. Katrinka makes wall hangings and purses from the embellished fabric. She will be talking about her work, sources of inspiration, how she translates the idea onto fabric, and her techniques. Her work is sold at Tulsa Artery and through her Facebook page, Wallflowers by Katrina Booth.
