Join us for a weekly gathering dedicated to the Fiber Arts. All fiber crafts welcome. You do not need to be an expert to come knit, crochet, weave, embroider, sew, o quilt with us. All levels welcome. Bring a friend or two and come learn a new stitch or technique, share your current projects or your New Year fiber resolutions with our local Fiber Tribe. Some materials and tools available at the Library.
Fiber Arts Club is Hosted by M. Emilia Barbosa, a Portuguese-American fiber artist and enthusiast. Emilia has been teaching, learning, and practicing several fiber disciplines for more than a decade. She is an active member of the Kaw Valley Fiber Guild in Kansas and a well-known fiber artist in Lawrence, KS. Emilia designs knit and crochet patterns, weaves, embroiders, and haskins and hand-dyes her own yarns. She is a creative and curious person whose travels and academic life have allowed her to be in contact with many craft and textile artists and traditions in Europe and Latin America. When she is not busy at her academic job at S&T, Emilia can be found in her home studio practicing her multiple crafts and creating new patterns, projects, and classes.
