Waggoner - Organizer
has loved textiles forever, the colors, the feel, the warmth. She
grew up in a university town and was immersed in a broad variety
of art activities. Her Mom started teaching her how to knit when
was 4, sewing when she was 10. She has used both of these skills
for clothing and for beauty. Several years ago she picked up spinning
again after learning as a teen, and has enjoyed the relaxation that
it can bring into her life and oh, also, the beautiful yarns. Seven
years ago she started her hand dying business, Two Windows Dye Company.
Textiles are wonderful and she has chosen to never look back.
Petersen - Contributor
Carol Petersen is a knitter who grew up in Chicago, but who has lived
in Hutchinson for 27 years. She is a speech-language pathologist...
who works with students in the Buhler and Nickerson districts. Her
Aunt Dolly taught her how to knit when she was little to distract
her from her new baby brother. She enjoys knitting garments and
accessories using beautiful natural fibers found at knitting boutiques.Knitting
is a social event for her. She belong to a knitting community at
Yarn, a store in downtown Hutchinson, where people create and relax
every Tuesday night. The ladies there offer help and support for
challenging projects in a loving, non-judgmental environment. Knitting
is also an important stress release, which is cheaper and more fun
"I have been weaving for maybe 20 years, the past 10 or so weaving rugs. The past 4 years
or so I have been weaving rugs using upholstery selvages. These selvages...
the edge of upholstery fabric and from upholstery factories. I get
them from a place, Inweave, in NW Iowa. She gets the selvages from
factories around the country. They come in a bag of what I call
"mish/mash"; something retrieved from the dumpster. These selvages
are washable. I enjoy weaving with them. The colors are very vibrant
and fun to work with.

Americana / Roots Rock http://jonathanfleig.com/ "The musician in the wild is a rare thing these days...So,
it's a special thing for me when I stumble across one who still
runs free. Sustaining himself on music. In 2012, Jonathan will
release his next album "Strange Caravan" and the hard
traveling will begin again. Do yourself a favor. Go see a show.
Pick up a CD. Feel that air move." - Recording artist,
producer, engineer and owner of Planet Paul Recording studios
Art of Reagan Tatro and Kerry Weins Rayl
was born and raised in Burrton. KS, by two very artistic parents
who both studied art. They taught me to see God's creation in
everyday life and how to express it through art...Throughout the
last seven years I have kept myself busy with creative hobbies
but always ached for more.My pastor's wife, Victoria Helmuth,
is an art instructor and encouraged me to take a class with her
and that is when it was over: I was hooked. It is very relaxing
and therapeutic for me. I hope everyone enjoys my work as much
as I enjoy creating it." 2010 Boots and Bling Arizen Artist
with the Kansas Fairgrounds Foundation!
started painting in 2010 by request of my good friend Victoria
Helmuth. She invited me to attend a class at her art school; I
knew I had no talent. I could only draw stick figures but I reluctantly
agreed. My first paintings were very stressful because they were
very detailed; once I found the freedom of abstract, I went crazy!
When I was a child I never liked coloring books and coloring inside
the lines, I would much rather have a blank page to create my
own designs. I guess that has carried through to my artwork.
really do not consider myself an artist, art is just a place I
go to hide from the cares of this busy world."
