Seasonal Projects

I love it that we are such a global community here on Fiberygoodness, we have wonderful connections throughout Europe, the US, and here in the Southern Hemisphere too. It leads to an amazing diversity of experiences, fibers, and projects! At the moment here in New Zealand we are well into Autumn, the trees have very much turned and there is a chill in the air that makes me want to snuggle up in front of a blazing fire, watch old

I can hear the call of the gulls, the slapping of the waves against the hull and the creak of the timbers as our ship is prepared for the exciting journey ahead. This is the time when anticipation can be tasted in the sea air, the time when adventure comes knocking and we can’t turn away, because we have done this before and we know what could happen… Yes this is to tell you that my wheel is stowed, my

The Journey to the Golden Fleece Exhibit at the Bellefonte Art Museum — The Pics!!!

As many of you know, selected finished pieces from those of us who have gone on the Journey to the Golden Fleece have been on display at the Bellefont Art Museum in Bellefonte, PA.  With our trusty photographer, Sara Norine James, riding shotgun, we headed up for the opening reception a couple of weeks ago.  Was it amazing?  Oh, yes…truly amazing to see the pieces hung in the gallery.  Sara took shot beautiful images for us.  So without further ado,

Museum Show for Journey to the Golden Fleece Opens Next Weekend!

For the past year, we have been working on organizing a showing of a collection of twenty pieces representing the Journey to the Golden Fleece with the Bellefonte Art Museum.  The project of making this happen has been a journey unto itself.  Fortunately, I had a warm up project a couple of years ago when I organized the traveling Leather and Lace Challenge Collection with Deb Lambert of Picasso’s Moon.  I thought when I had finished with that project, I

Why the Golden Fleece?

Myths. Legends. Stories and fairy tales. We grew up with them, we read them to our kids, they entertain us and transport us to different and magical times and places. But you know, I don’t think thats all there is to it. If we go back a very long time, a really really  long time, before we had the computers and the interweb, before we had books, before we had written words.. these stories were more than just a moments

Gallery Gazing

This week we are anticipating the release   of Module 2 in our Golden Fleece Fiber Creativity course (scheduled for 6 January).
