Everyone is invited to join the Hatchetts for a day of dyeing yarn, fleece and other fiber related items on Saturday, October 2, 2010 from 10 am to 3 pm (or whenever we get done). We will start setting up around 9:30. Please bring items that you want to dye and if you have a butane stove or a large dye kettle (enamel or stainless), bring that as well. A main dish for lunch will be provided, probably a hearty soup and if attendees want to bring a salad or dessert, that would be great. We will be outdoors, so if the weather is bad we will cancel. Hopefully it will be a beautiful autumn day and a great time to also bring a spinning wheel and sit in the shade and spin, knit, or just be.
If you’re interested in participating in this activity and joining the Guild, please go to our contact page and request directions!
The Kansas Alliance of Weavers and Spinners’ (KAWS) annual conference was held in Emporia this weekend; unfortunately, many Wichita guild members were unable to attend. But we were well represented by those who did make the trip, and they also made sure our guild table looked its best!
The theme for this year’s guild table exhibit (and competition!) was “Yarn Cocktails”. Several members contributed fiber interpretations of specific cocktails. This is a view of the entire table:
Here’s a non-alcoholic “Tequila Sunrise”…
… and one more citrus-y closeup:
We don’t yet know how our table fared in the competition, but had fun seeing everyone’s ideas!
