Now that Miami finally has an active fiber group, we have events and projects lined up. When I launched Fantastic Fibers Miami in February, the response was overwhelmingly positive! So many people create with yarn and fabric have been waiting and wanting a community.
Our biggie is, Fantastic Fibers Miami is hosting an international event, World Wide Knit in Public Day. Yes, it’s a thing! Miami, we are taking fiber out of the closet and into the daylight on June 18, 2016. Pérez Art Museum Miami is graciously providing public space and FREE ADMISSION to the museum for knitters. We will meet at the Bayside Stair overlooking gorgeous Biscayne Bay.
Come for an hour or two or stay the day! We are there from 12 – 5 PM. Bring your needles and your yarn. Make a blanket square for the children of Lotus House, make something of your own; or learn to knit from our experienced members. It’s all free! Bring water, a cushion, sunscreen. Ride the metro to Museum Park ~ limited parking at PAMM is $2/hour.
Be part of our diverse collection of fiber artists. Fantastic Fibers Miami meets on the 4th Saturday of every month from 2 – 4 at Artisan Lounge, 3rd floor, 500 NE 1st Street. Free secure parking in the rear for guests. Everyone who has an interest in or works with any fiber medium is welcome! Our monthly challenge project for May answers the question, “Who Are You, Really?” In you favorite fiber technique, any size up to 20″ x 20″ .Workshops and exhibitions are planned for the future.
Meanwhile at Pamela Palma Designs, I am still weaving! It brings such tranquility into my life. It is my greatest pleasure to share this with you. I encourage you to soothe your weary selves with weaving! Get lost in the rhythm, make magic! Classes continue throughout May and June. Private and semi private lessons are geared toward your interests and abilities. Details here.
