July 2014. SEVENTEEN school members participate in another group challenge for the Small Format show sponsored by the American Tapestry Alliance held in conjunction with the Handweavers Guilds of America Convergence in Rhode Island in July. The Show is called "Untitled/Unjuried" and is open to weavers of all experience levels. Maximum size for the tapestry is 10" x 10". Our Group Challenge is about fancy bugs, called "Bugs: All Dressed Up." We hope to have a local venue after the tapestries return from Rhode Island and to include these and other bugs in our show in Tillamook in 2015.
In May and June of 2015 the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center is hosting an exhibit of the work of our members. The show is entitled All Dressed Up. Weavers are working madly to complete their dressy tapestries for this show.
