Bonds and Connections - May 2014

Each member of Designing Weavers Guild shows a project that addresses the guild theme in an annual presentation. "Bonds and Connections" is this year's theme, and I illustrated my fiber bonds and connections with the whimsical sock puppets made at a recent createIt@ARTSgarage session!

My work as a regional yarn representative is embodied in the socks themselves – discontinued samples from Regia that were donated to me from representatives throughout the United States and Canada. I designed several puppet prototypes, a joyful experience in making, and then presented what I learned to a wonderful group of educators who simply outdid themselves creating their own puppets.

So there you have it – each puppet connects my fiber work  in making, teaching and sales, plus celebrates the strong bonds with the many people who have become my friends through fiber!
