The Talents of Our VP!
SPOTLIGHT: Susan Savage
Here is another member, picked at random, Susan Savage! She is another person of many talents from many years of weaving and spinning to fair isle knitting. I got to know her a little better while carpooling to a meeting — did you know she is a scientist and spent many years in Alaska studying wildlife! Below you will find several pictures of her Show & Tell items.
The Talents of a Master
SPOTLIGHT: Lynn Baritelle
I decided to pick a member, at random, and showcase them here on our blog. Lynn is the first to showcase! She is multi-talented in several fiber crafts including: dyeing, weaving and spinning. I recently found out she has a 35 shaft loom! WOW! I also heard her say she loved weaving so much that she went to school and received a Masters in weaving. Below you will find several pictures of her Show & Tell items.
Bring color and beauty to the world, one fun project at a time!
"The life of an artist isn't alway an easy one but sometimes that struggle is exactly what a creative spirit needs! Much like a Phoenix I have come into my own and realized my artistic passions. Fiber, felt, buttons, yarn and more. It is my pleasure to share my work in this shop. I hope you find all your looking for and more."
Lauralee Deluca is one of our more "colorful" members and I felt she needed sharing! Being sort of a fiber maniac, she loves creating luscious blends for yummy yarns and felted projects. She teaches and sells her goods at events and local yarn shops.
It’s been a very colorful summer at the Phoenixx Fiber Studio!
A Members Trip To Sweden
Hello everyone! We have a member, Barbara Brumagim, who took a wonderful trip to Sweden and has graciously shared photos with me and I am passing them along to you. Looks she enjoyed all there was about Swedish weaving and their looms
Silk Mill Loom
Hi guild friends! I am on a trip to Sweden! During my stay in Stockholm, I visited the K A Almgren museum. You can see all the original silk mill machinery still in use. Punchcard Jacquard (sp?) loom, etc. it was Amazing!
It is so beautiful here in Gotland. Gotland sheep known for their unique curly coats. Bought skein to try! I also visited Faro Island — want to find out the relationship between Faro Swedish yarn and island name!
Here is a Viking loom form 800 AD. It is located on Birka Island in Sweden .
Working Weaving House
These pictures are from the Marta Mass-Fjetterstrom museum — working weaving house Near Halmstad, Sweden.

I visited a delightful Weaving Fair in Halmstad, Sweden.
As the NOSSG Social Butterfly I try to get as much info out there about our guild and guild members. I hope you enjoy reading, seeing and watching what we are up to!
