Byron Center, Michigan – The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild’s next program meeting is on Wed., October 4, featuring Georgia Mae Farr on “AfroCentric Inspired Clothing,” at the Holland Area Arts Council, 150 East 8th St., Holland, MI 49423, starting promptly at 6:30pm with social time beginning at 6pm. Guests are asked to pay $10 toward the speaker’s fee.
Grand Rapids resident Georgia Mae Farr will talk about how she uses traditional handmade
African mud cloth in her clothing creations, her methods, and how she handles fabrics. She will have samples of her one-of-a-kind clothing on hand.
An experienced sewer who started sewing, doing alterations, designing and making garments when she was very young, Farr began her Creations by Georgia in 1992 after years of professionally altering clothing. She later had a custom fashion business where she made formal ware and wedding attire. Her work can be seen on her Etsy Shop, https://www.etsy.com/shop/CreationsbyGeorgiaF; at the Grand Rapids African American Museum and Archives (GRAAMA) on Monroe, NE, in Grand Rapids; or on her Facebook page.
The Lakeshore Fiber Arts Guild invites anyone interested in the textile fiber arts to their monthly program meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at the Holland Area Arts Council.
