Joanna White will be at our 
June 16 meeting demonstrating 
her silk painting techniques and showing examples of her work.  
She will demonstrate quilting 
with hand-dyed silk.  

In her artist statement Joanna says, "Over the past 30 years, my love of color, texture and beauty has been expressed through various textile mediums: sewing, weaving, knitting, felting, quilting and fabric collage.  It has only been in the last five years since I have retired that the love of all things fiber has fully been expressed through painting on silk. I have found my passion!  Silk is a living, breathing fiber that reflects light and has an inner radiance that brings forth the beauty of the wearer.  Painting on silk is like flying in beautiful skies . . . the dyes move and flow magically on stretched white silk.  Sumi-e brushes, French dye, and resists of all kinds are the vehicles for creating one-of-a kind fabrics." 

The June Quilt Guild meeting is Monday, June 16
beginning with a social time at 6:30 PM with our meeting and program at 7:00 PM at the Senior Center at 278 Meroney Street in Mocksville.  Meetings are open to those interested in learning more about quilting.
