We’re having a ‘Second Chance’ Sale immediately following the November 5th meeting! There is still plenty of commercial yarn for weaving and knitting/crochet, handspun yarn, the beautiful backstrap loom, books & magazines and miscellaneous items. NEW this time around are additional magazines, some spinning fiber (cotton & cotton blends) and workshop notes and other files! Proceeds go to the guild treasury; payment with cash or checks only – we are not able to process cards.
ALSO – Guild members are welcome to bring books, tools and fiber for individual sale (proceeds to the seller). No finished items, please. This is a great opportunity to move along those things you’re not using – and make space for new stuff!
Art Yarn Refresher
Learn about and practice core spinning techniques to make art yarn – thick and thin, loopy or bumpy, maybe with some added “things.” Bring a spinning wheel if you have one, or bring another project you’re working on and stay to watch and commune.
Denise Renee will bring her Schacht Wheels for people to test drive them! She will talk about the benefits of each wheel and how spinning wheels work in general (adjustments and mechanics). She will be offering discounts on Schacht Wheels and other Schacht equipment. If you have ever wondered about Schact products, you can have your questions answered here!
