Valley Stitchers Program
Another local guild, Valley Stitchers, will be having a presentation by Sheila O’Hara on January 2nd.
Sheila is a weaver of stunning landscapes, dancing sheep, and many other fiber fantasies. She has been weaving since 1976, gradually progressing to working on a jacquard loom. Her weavings can now be much more detailed, with some being photo realistic such as "Pomo Girl" pictured here. Her "Dancing Sheep" have been perennial favorites of weavers for a long time. Sheila will talk about her life in weaving, her inspirations and her process. She is a great, entertaining speaker.
