Fiber Fanatics of Northwest Oklahoma Plans Exhibition & Workshops at SWOSU


The Fiber Fanatics of Northwest Oklahoma will have an exhibition and workshops at Southwestern Oklahoma State University during the first half of February on the Weatherford campus.

The exhibition will run from Monday, February 4 through Friday, February 15 in the SWOSU Art Building. Free workshops are planned Wednesday, February 6, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday, February 9, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

According to E.K. Jeong, participants in the free workshops will enjoy and learn the skills of spinning, wool carding, needle felting, knitting, weaving, embroidering, crocheting, and kumahimo, a Japanese form of braid-making. The workshops are come-and-go, so Jeong encourages area residents to come whatever time works with their schedules. There is no need to register, and everyone is invited.

Participating members of the Fiber Fanatics of Northwest Oklahoma include Marna Davis, Marilyn Hines, Bill Kelly, Sherry Liston, Charles Sides, Donna Smith, Melanie Murray, Kathleen Oyler, Mary Segal, Christy Linsley, Sheila Smith, Ann Clair, and Vickie Williams.

The Oklahoma Arts Council and SWOSU Visiting Artists Program sponsor the exhibition and workshops.
