Repurposing Love-Worn Treasures: Crossthreads Fiber Guild
Do you have a love-worn item that could use some TLC (or tender loving care) to extend its use and pleasure? This was the challenge for the Crossthreads Fiber Guild (South Dakota) at its October meeting to complement the year-long theme of learning a new skill. Any object of any material (not necessarily cloth!) was to be repurposed into something else. Other challenges held this year included the July soap-in-a-coat (felting fiber around a scented bar of soap), the September scrapping-with-scraps (making leftover project remains into gifts), and the spring Green Challenge of recycling items into another useful idea. December brings Fiber Day with several miniprojects for members to create in different mediums.
