JPFA 2018 Monthly Meeting & Project Schedule
The Carson Valley Quilt Guild was kind enough to invite JPFA members to attend one of their meetings. After being treated to their show-and-tell featuring amazing quilts, we shared a little bit of what JPFA has been up to. For more information on the Quilt Guild, visit their website here!
Job’s Peak Fiber Arts was invited by the Carson Valley Museum for the fifth year in a row to share information in June 2017 on various fiber arts. We demonstrated carding, cleaning, spinning, weaving, ice dyeing, felted and knitted projects. We hope to continue the event in 2018!
