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 1:30pm – 3:30pm. 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 Elizabeth Bamberger at elizabethbamberger@gmail.com.

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

The Green Committee is happy to share that Pam Pilcher's Envious Edgar the Pig quilt sold at Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum. It was purchased by someone from Los Angeles. Great for Pam, us, and for the Museum.

Congratulations Pam! We hope Edgar enjoys his new home—we'll miss him!

It's Not Easy Being Green!

Sunday, September 10 "It's Not East Being Green" celebrated with an artist reception at Latimer Quilt and Textile Museum in Tillamook. There were over 60 visitors and artists who attended throughout the afternoon. Our exhibit fit the space well and many folks commented that they loved reading the gallery tag stories along with viewing the works. There were many positive comments about our work and many viewers were amazed at our creativity and the varied responses to the theme.

The Latimer folks were thrilled with the reception turnout and can't wait to see what we come up with next!
