Happy New Year!

Thanks to The Spooners for hosting our festive Holiday Party. It's very generous of you to share your home with us during the holidays, and everyone had a wonderful time.

We hope you didn't miss the January workshop with John Pitblado on Indigo dyeing. His presentation was very interesting and informative and the pictures were lovely. We hope to see pictures of the products from the workshop soon!

We invite you to February's workshop. If you're interested in spinning but haven't a clue how to get started, Cheryl Ambrose is hosting a "Beginning Spinning" workshop at our February meeting. Whether a drop spindle is your thing, or you want to learn wheel spinning, this will be a marvelous opportunity to learn. Workshop fee is $35 and includes materials.

February is a wealth of riches, as there are two separate workshops. For those more advanced, Susie Meach will be exploring Spinning Designer Yarns. Add color and texture to your yarns with several techniques, including combing in, plying with, and spinning unique fibers and other materials. Bring a wheel, preferably with a large oriface, and carders, combs and other fiber prep tools you may have. Workshop fee is $35 and includes materials.

As always, Guild meetings are open to all. We love guests! Come by and see what we're about, and maybe you'll get addicted to fiber too!
