November 2020 Program – Gayle Roehm – Japanese Knitting

HGB November 2020 Program – G Roehm

Gayle Roehm – Japanese Knitting

Handweavers Guild of Boulder
November 2020 Day & Evening Program

 

Gayle teaches knitting classes around the country, with a focus on using Japanese patterns. She loves to introduce knitters to the pleasures of Japanese designs, and her knowledge of the subject is unmatched.

Her article about Japanese knitting appeared in Knitter’s Magazine in 1997, and was among the first information to appear in English on the topic. She prepared the Japanese section of the book Knitting Languages, and for some time she was the translator for Dancing Fibers, importer of Diakeito yarn.

Now that Japanese books and magazines are readily available online, Gayle has been teaching knitters across the country how to understand and enjoy these intriguing designs. She has taught for Stitches events, Interweave Knitting Lab, Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat, Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, Vogue Knitting Live, Knitter’s Connection and numerous other national, regional and guild events.

Her designs for garments and accessories have appeared in Knitter’s Magazine, Interweave Knits, A Gathering of Lace, and for yarn companies such as Jamieson & Smith. She is a member of Potomac Fiber Arts Gallery in Alexandria, VA, where she sells her original handknits.

October 2020 Program – Kathy Hattori – Natural Fiber Dyeing

HGB October 2020 Program – K Hattori

Kathy Hattori – Natural Fiber Dyeing
Botanical Colors

Handweavers Guild of Boulder
October 2020 Day & Evening Program

 

The way that conventional color is applied to clothes is broken. “Wet processing” as industrial dyeing is called, is one of the top polluters in the world, consuming enormous amounts of energy, water and petrochemical based colorants.

Botanical Colors supplies artisans and industry with the materials and know-how to dye textiles in a way that uses less water, is non-toxic and biodegradeable and draws its incomparable color palette from humble plants and natural sources. All colors are sustainably derived, many from agricultural and food waste products.

Botanical Colors studios are located in Seattle, Washington where they offer production dyeing and do fulfillment.

Botanical Colors offers guidance, support and consulting for emerging designers, brands and artisans. Feedback Friday is a weekly online series providing hour-long video discussions with guest experts.

Curious About the Sale? Complying with Standards

Curious About the Sale?

Complying with Standards – presented by the HGB Sale Technology Committee

Saturday August 29, 2020 – 1:00pm
Zoom Reservations–salehelp@handweaversofboulder.org

 

Open to HGB members and those potential members who wish to better understand the ins and outs of participating in the annual Sale.

Learn about our Standards procedures, and how the Guild ensures that every item offered for sale is appropriate for the Sale, is well executed, and is ready to be sold. We strongly encourage everyone attending to bring to the meeting examples of items they’re considering selling to see if they’re appropriate. A significant part of the session will be for participants to interact with the Standards Coordinator.

 


The HGB Sale Technology Committee is hosting a series of sessions this summer concerning participation in Annual Show & Sale. The sessions are open to prospective HGB members as well as current members. Four different topics will be covered over the course of this summer and early fall:

  • Sale 101: An Overview
  • Complying with the Standards
  • Using the Different Computer Programs
  • What to Expect at Check-In and Check-Out

Because of the current social distancing requirements, the session will be held via Zoom.

We are very happy to work individually ahead of time with anyone who hasn’t yet had experience with using Zoom.

If you’d like to attend any or all of these sessions, email salehelp@handweaversofboulder.org for Zoom meeting details, and do please let us know in that email if you’d like some help setting up Zoom. We hope to see many people at the meetings. And don’t forget to “bring” examples of your prospective inventory to the Standards session!


Here are the descriptions of the programs:

Sale 101: An Overview
An introduction to the Sale, with information about how to join the Guild, what Standards is about, working shifts and why to do so even if you’re not selling anything, the overall time frame and deadlines, and the Showcase. There’ll be photos of previous sales at the beginning, and plenty of time for Q & A throughout and at the end.

Complying with the Standards

We strongly encourage everyone attending to bring to the meeting examples of items they’re considering selling to see if they’re appropriate. A significant part of the session will be for participants to interact with the Standards Coordinator.

Using the Different Computer Programs
There are a number of computer programs our Sale artists need to use: the Artist Data Entry (ADE) program for entering your Sale inventory and creating bar code labels, the WhenToWork program for signing up to work shifts, the ConsignorAccess program for tracking your sales during the Sale. The Sale Technology Committee folk will lead you through each of these programs, show you where to find them and how to use them, and how to get extra help if you want it. In this program, you’ll also learn about the different shifts that are available for you to work in support of the Sale.
