DDFA went on their annual retreat to Cocoa Beach. All members did not attend, but those who did had a wonderful time. We arrived around noon Friday, unpacked, talked, had lunch, talked, set up projects and shared art ideas until dinner. The Shark Pit is within walking distance and a menu for all. Saturday two more members joined us for the day and Ellen Lindner showed us her techniques for a collage art piece. That evening we had dinner out again and on to "Art Gallery of Viera", where Dij Pacarro has some of her work on display. Sunday we slowly packed up and talked about our great week-end together.

A small number of members were able to attend the July meeting. We discussed our annual retreat coming up this week-end. 3-days of fun and fiber at Cocoa Beach. Ellen Lindner will lead us in her Sticky Fingers: Glued Fabric Collage. She teaches this as a On-line class. Show and Tell is always a high point of our meetings. Barbara Bilbo shared her latest dolls made from found objects. Peg Horsfield shared a new quilt. Ruth Anne Parker's program was on watercolor pencils and colored markers.

This past Saturday was a playday for DDFA at RiverHouse. We invited another fiber arts group, Seams Unique, to join us. Jill Brown showed us ice dyeing and Andrea Luliak followed with demos on silk screening and Photo EZ screens. Everyone was happy to play with dye, ice, stencils, etc. I believe most of us will try at least one technique again.

This past month our group has been playing with Zentangles. At our meeting last week, each of us did a show and tell of some of the play. Later we did an exchange of our samples. Bev had on a sweat shirt decorated with a form of zentangles. We are planning a challenge piece using our creations and due in May.
