The Fiber Art of Sue Habegger

Sue Habegger has been weaving and creating wonderful textiles for much of her adult life.  Now she has decided to tie up all the loose ends and send her weaving tools and yarns to the next generation of weavers. But before the big sale, Sue plans to give a presentation at a Foothill Fibers Guild meeting on April 26.  Here is Sue's description of that program.
I will do a slide presentation of the placemats and clothing I did from 1980 thru 1990’s including how I did modified ikat on 30 yard warps at 32 epi for placemats with mop yarn, and then did fabric on the same warp for warp faced yardage with finer yarn for kimono jackets and caftans, and double layer yardage for light 16 epi. napkins and summer weight casual tops.    I will also bring a selection of Southwest tapestries (off my walls and not for sale) that are weft faced wool worsted.

Sue is very active in environmental causes and we know that she won't be idle now that she no longer will be weaving; we will definitely miss seeing her beautiful textiles at the fair and at our meetings.  You have been a inspirational weaver to us all, Sue.  I know your weaving legacy will live on and on.

On May 20 and 21, Sue will liquidate her yarn stash  at a special sale to be held at a friend's home in Grass Valley.
