Event Details

If you work with fibers, knit, weave, etc., come to explore some other  options you can
use. , Betty Burian Kirk will introduce you to an abundance of fibers.

Learn about animal fibers like yak and musk ox, plant fibers like ramie and lotus as
well as regenerated manufactured fibers like rose, pearl and mint. Find out what
the most expensive legal fiber is.

Receiving a bachelor’s and master’s degree from Northern Illinois University, Kirk
is a former art teacher. Some of Betty’s talents include weaving, spinning, felting,
ribbon flowers, tassels, Japanese bookbinding and Kumihimo. Betty frequently
teaches at regional and national conferences. This summer she will be teaching
Japanese bookbinding at Convergence 2024 in Wichita KS.

The Weaver's Guild will host their monthly business meeting before beginning on the project. The public is welcome to attend.
