Dear SAORI Worcester current and former students,

Happy New Year!

I hope you have a wonderful year filled with joyful creative energy. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you to support SAORI Worcester in 2015. It was a great leaping year for the studio because we had a successful Japan tour in May and an excellent studio exhibition “Loom in Essence” in July. I also had a great opportunity to showcase my own work with other artists at the Worcester Center for Craft in January. Moreover through January –June we had a study group going and in the fall many of us had fun with painting warp with Janet Nelson to explore new area of weaving which deepen our skills and knowledge.
In 2016 I will continue practicing my own SAORI as well as coaching others. I have not planned big events like last year however, I am planning to create a new series of workshop for sewing. Also, I hope a Fiber Art Tour to New England from Japan to be realized.



Next SAORI kai (gathering) will be on Feb. 6th (Sat.) 3:30-5:30pm.
The spotlight is yarn swap and warp exchange. Please bring yarn you don’t use or you have too much to giveaway. If you bring, you will have a turn to pick some yarn that others bring. If we get a lot, even people who don’t bring any might be able to take some home.
The warp exchange is just for people who wish to participate. This is a wonderful way to challenge yourself to weave on warp that you don’t expect. This can be done with people who can not make SAORI kai physically if you ship your warp with $6 check for postage to send other’s warp back. Please let Mihoko know if you would like to participate in this way. Let’s make 150 threads 4 meter long. Make Sure to tie cross and chokes. Include a note about the fiber if you know them which helps.
Hope to see you in the studio soon! 
Warm regards,
