“Threads of Spirit - Cloths of Meaning”

Lois will look with us at some of the different ways humans have used textiles for religious or spiritual purposes. She will follow the connecting thread across time and explores the effect on different cultures, contemporary artists, and her own work.

January 10, 2015 "Play Date at BAM" We will have several stations at which we will have demonstrations of various types of surface design. Then we will do hands-on work to enhance fabric to be sold at our StashFest fundraiser. Loads of fun!

Direction to Bertona Hall at Seattle Pacific University

Seattle Pacific University is on the north edge of Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, several blocks west of the Fremont bridge.

From I-5, take the NE 50th Street exit and drive west. Turn left (south) on Fremont Avenue N — about two miles. Get into the right lane as you cross the Fremont bridge and take the first turn-off to the right and then immediately right again onto Nickerson Street. Follow Nickerson for about half a mile, and turn left (south) at the stoplight for 3rd Avenue West. You are now on the SPU campus.

From 3rd West, enter the parking lot on your left by turning into the driveway beside Stell's, the small restaurant. Our building is on the east side of the parking lot, a one-story red brick building. Parking in the lot is free for us on weekends; ignore the "No Parking" signs. Look for sandwich boards with the CQA logo at the building entrance.
