Blog has been updated. Please have a look at this as Bea has done a lot of work setting up our Calendar of events. Thanks Bea.
Addition: Clicking on the calendar event will open a window giving more details.
Ann gave a Report on a Spinning DVD that she borrowed from the OK Library. Color and Design for Spinners. Ann also showed how to peel off a side off of a batt and then continues back down the other side to make a long continuous length instead of short pieces.
This is called Z stripping and can be used on any batt but is usually done with colour blended batts.
Sheep to Shawl:
Spinners: Carole, Elvi, Bea, Rod if we are short a person
Having two teams has been discussed, to allow all who wish to do so to participate. That would require a few more people.
Suggestion is to just have one team.
Changes to the SAFF spinning classes.
1- Plied spinning by a beginner spinner (Less than 3yrs experience) (label whether self prepped or commercial prep)
A busy and interesting week for us with lots of interest and people stopping by. Many thanks to all who came and the many who came several times during the week, gave us a chance to visit with each other, get some of our own projects underway plus wash the fleece needed for the sheep to shawl and weave some samples for the GCW. Bringing items for display by a diversity of members made the display different each day. Two ladies came back three times on the Wednesday looking for a scarf they had seen on Tuesday,(which was no longer there).
Display at Picadilly Mall. This month’s theme is felting. Bea will be co-ordinating the display. Please see her if you wish to loan items for display.
The list for help on our Spin Out oct 28th is also growing. The Kitchen help from last year has signed up to do it again, Gabriele, Glenda and Sherry.
