May 16th, 2009

Donna Nelson, a member of our Guild, raises chinchillas and will presenting a program about them. Donna has been promoting the use of chinchilla fiber for use in spinning and needle arts. She will bring several of her animals (she brought one for a “teaser” to the Aril meeting) and share with us the care, feeding, and raising of chinchillas.

In the afternoon, there will be a spin, weave, knit, crochet, locker-hooking, bobbin lace workshop. Bring whatever you want to do for an afternoon.

But most of all, in the spirit of “recycling” bring items from your stash that you are willing to trade, barter, sell. Fibers, yarns, books, tools, bags, ufo’s (unfinished objects), whatever you like. You tag it, you sell or swap it, you keep the proceeds or new-to-you goodies.
