Fiber Prep Tools – Resources

Building on the September 2017 meeting program, here are a few online resources for the tools demonstrated by Guild members Sharon Barnes, Susan De Wit, April Nilsen, Nancy Squire and Denise Renee.

Download the meeting’s handout, a chart of fiber prep tools and their uses.

Please bear in mind that there are many ways to use these tools, and that the ‘right’ way is the way that works for you (as long as you stay safe)!  Try searching YouTube for other techniques.
