High Fiber Diet is a group of fiber artists committed to advancing their art professionally. HFD actively searches for exhibit venues, and members have the opportunity to submit work for juried group exhibitions. High Fiber Diet members challenge themselves to become more educated about art and design principles and to improve creatively on an individual basis. The group meets 7 times per year (February, April, May, July, August, October, and November) on the third Tuesday from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. Venues may change. Meetings usually include a discussion topic, updates on current and upcoming exhibits, and sharing of members' current work. For more information about the group, check the HFD blog at www.hfd-highfiberdiet.blogspot.com or contact Laura Jaszkowski at joyincloth@gmail.com.

The group is affiliated with Columbia FiberArts Guild of Portland, Oregon

NW Vibes
What is it that makes the Northwest unique from the rest of the country? There is a reason we have chosen to live here; is it the beauty of the landscape, the variation of the skies and weather, the character of the cities, or that you can get the best cup of coffee in the country at virtually every corner? This show represents what makes living in the Northwest special to us.
