Maryann Neubert, Cerrillos Sunflower
Fort Laramie, Wyoming 
15” x 54”

Materials: Medium weight churro yarn, my own handspun wool yarns, glass beads, cotton warp

Techniques: Handwoven

The inspiration for this piece is my two favorite colors, red and yellow. I also love textures, movement, and color gradation, which are all present in this tapestry. I wove this on a Schacht rigid heddle loom in plain weave using solid color medium weight Churro from Weaving Southwest, and my own handdyed, handcarded, and handspun yarn of wools with some glitz thrown in.

Maryann Neubert, Sedona Poppies
Fort Laramie, Wyoming 
Materials: Medium weight churro yarn, natural brown handspun Romney wool yarn, cotton warp, cottonwood

Techniques: handwoven and hand embroidered

The color palette was originally imagined as a tightly woven rug. After a few inches of weaving, and a change of warp from wool to cotton, it became a plain woven piece in the same color arrangement as my original idea. As I wove, I was bothered by the large blocks of color, and added a simple embroidered floral motif to the larger sections of color. I didn’t want it just to be another flat woven shawl, so I added small pleats to add shaping elements to it, and we have the capelet you see.

The color scheme reminds me of the red rocks around Sedona, Arizona, and is done in medium weight churro from Weaving Southwest, as well as my own natural brown handspun Romney wool yarn.

Rev. Marion L. Rhyne, Fiber Arts Mandala: Homage to Bark
Concord, North Carolina 
10.5” Circle

Materials: Purchased wool felt circle, churro wool yarn, craft felt, green thread

Techniques: Felting: hand and machine, hand sewing

"When I opened my monthly box of Churro yarn I immediately saw the bark of a tree. Nature is my muse and I always look to my craft resources to see how I can use them artistically, not always naturally. I saw the bark of a tree! That was my inspiration. Being a mandala facilitator I do much of my artistic work in mandala form, a circle. Therefore the ‘bark’ was fit on a circle felt form. A mandala is very meditative, as is nature. I enjoyed working on this piece." -Marion
