Next Program

Summer Meeting Aug. 21, 2014

We’ll meet at our usual location in Woodside Church Parish Hall at 7:30 pm. ┬áDinner space will be reserved at Buck’s from 5:45 pm and anyone who wishes to, come!

This will be a Round Robin event with demonstrations of felting, plying with a spindle and with a spinning wheel, natural dyes from our own neighborhoods with dyed wool samples, and a special sort of challenge which Kathleen Dickey says is a lot of fun. If you just attended Teresa Ruch’s weaving for draping workshop earlier this month, bring some examples to share. If you’d like to demo a technique not on this list, bring that as well. See you there!
