'Creative Needle Felting'
LEOMINSTER -- The Leominster Art Association will meet Tuesday, March 19, at 7 p.m., at Congregational Church of Christ, 583 Main St. This month's guest is Lyn Slade, who will demonstrate "Creative Needle Felting Wool Art." Slade has been enchanted by needle felting from the moment she first picked up a needle. She is a needle-felting artist, teacher and the author of "Creative Needle Felting: Wool Art with a Painterly Style," published by All American Crafts Publishing Co. She has been teaching needle-felting art and exhibiting in solo and group art exhibits for 11 years. Her work has been published in numerous national periodicals, and she has taught around the country, at shops, farms, homes, guilds and museums. When she is not focused on fiber, she is running a small bed-and-breakfast inn, creating cookie buffets for special events, and singing with a group of bedside singers. There is a $5 guest fee that may be applied toward membership. In case of inclement weather, cancellation information will be announced on radio station WPKZ 1280 AM or call Cindi Peterson at 978-342-2198.
