Our September speaker will be Jennifer Moore, a well-known weaver and author from Santa Fe. She has an MFA in fiber arts from the University of Oregon, and her background in piano and pipe organ easily crossed over to the loom, (a new stringed instrument!) where she began playing with color and design rather than sound.
Jennifer has traveled extensively teaching workshops and giving programs on color and design, and has recently begun speaking and teaching online as well. Her trademark is double-weave pick-up, and she has taken it to a high art.
Even if you are not a weaver, you will be inspired by her use of color and pattern! Keep an eye out for further information, as her presentation for us in September will take place online.
Have you been busy with fiber projects during this time of staying at home? Since we don't yet know what the future holds for meetings and sharing work in person, we've added a photo gallery where members can post images of their work. You'll find Gallery under the Explore menu.
It's easy to add your own images (JPG, PNG, TIF, or GIF format, and smaller than 100MB). Here's how:
Then click on your image(s) and tell us a bit about it by clicking on the EDIT CAPTION button at the bottom. It may sound like a lot of clicks as you read this, but I promise it's not difficult at all.
Show us what you've done! we want to see!
Click on the title to view the entire post, or click on the three stacked dots left of the title to see menu options. Let me know what you think!
All 2019-2020 members should have received an email sent on May 6. The subject line was "NEW HGB Website Passwords and Features", and the email contained information about the new software and website, as well as instructions on how to login and set a password. If you can't find this email in your inbox or spam folder and need a copy, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2019-2020 members can set a password as follows:
To access the members area of the website, including The Beat, you must be logged in to the website, using your email address and the password you set (see directions above). Oh, and you must be a paid member, which leads me to the next point:
Memberships expire on June 1, 2020. There is a 14 day grace period where you will still have access. It would be very helpful if memberships are renewed before then. Many people have renewed online already, with just a handful of people have experiencing hiccups, and overall the feedback is that the process is easy. Give it a try!
Memberships that are renewed via mail will be acknowledged as they are processed. Please be patient and ignore any email reminders about renewing if you mailed your membership renewal. Due to the pandemic, the post office box is not being visited as often, and it can take a few days for mail to get to the right people.
Email email@example.com with questions about the website, or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about memberships.
Your patience with the learning curve and your feedback are much appreciated.
