A friend and I went to Gathering of the Guilds in Portland, Oregon yesterday. It’s a free event that features lots of the local guilds. It’s big, so we concentrated on the Weaving, beading, and Glass work areas. The fabrics are hand dyes silks-scarf length in bundles of 6. I found 4 of the glass blobs I like to work with and lots of beads. The finding is a series of posts, so you can mount a special beads or group of beads and put them on a cord to wear, then change them out for the next piece you want for a different outfit. It was a fun day.
