January 12 at 7pm "Oscar Beriau and the Québecois Weaving Renaissance 1930 - 1950" with Mary Underwood
How does a chemist manage to become one of the most influential people in the world of handweaving in the early to mid-1900’s? Oscar Beriau, a chemist by training, would create a school for domestic arts in Quebec in 1930.

February 9 at 7pm “The Fascinating Life of Mary Meigs Atwater” with Karen Donde
Widely regarded as the unofficial dean of American handweaving, Mary Meigs Atwater, 1878-1956, did not start weaving until she was forty. Even then, she was not driven by a passion for making cloth. Her interests were more pragmatic.
March 9 at 7pm “Weaving Experiences in Guatemala” with Gisela Bosch
Over the past 15 years I have been lucky enough to go to Guatemala seven times and experience the rich weaving culture there. I will share that experience through my many photos.
April 13 at 7pm “Basketry” with Judy Dominic
Judy will discuss her love of basketry and its influence on most of her fiber work over the past forty years.
