February Program and Workshop

Workshops: Saturday Afternoon, 2/23/08,
1:00 - 4:00 p.m., $35.00 per person

Spinning 101: Beginning Spinning: Cheryl Ambrose will be teaching beginning spinning. Participants need to indicate whether they will be using a spinning wheel or drop spindle.
Spinning 102: Spinning Designer Yarns: Susie Meach explores adding color and texture to your yarns by carding in fibers-both natural and man-made. Learn ply with special colored fibers and yarns-mohair, silk, nylon, angelina, metallics, sequins and thread and beads. We will practice some of Diane Varney's textured spinning and plying techniques as discussed in 'Spinning Designer Yarns' including
boucle, slub and spiral.

Morning Program:
Silent Auction of Donated Books

The following books were donated to the Guild and will be sold at silent auction during Saturday's meeting. There's something here for almost everyone - weaving, spinning, knitting, beading, crocheting and more. Need some research materials for your Guild Challenge project? Check these out - help the Guild and expand your personal library at the same time!

Can't be at the meeting? Karen Tyner will accept emailed or mailed bids until Friday February 22 (bids received after that date are not eligible. Postmarks don't count; the bid must be in Karen's hand by the 22nd). These bids will be opened when the auction closes.

Rules: A minimum bid will be set for each book or set of books. Highest bid, either in person or sealed bid to Karen, gets the book(s); a tie bid will be decided in favor of the person who is present at the meeting. Payment is expected at conclusion of the auction unless other arrangements are made with Karen or Elisa. Disclaimer: Information provided on the books is to the best of our knowledge; books are sold 'as is' and no refunds will be given. Have questions or want more info on the books (published date, author's name), please email Elisa at epspinsATgmailDOTcom.
