February 2012 Meeting

Our February guild meeting is on the 12th, and remember that we meet at the new time of 1:00 - 4:00. Our program is Long Draw with Erica Fire. ~Expand your drafting repertoire.  This will be a hands-on presentation/workshop on long draw drafting techniques.  Long draws are used to make true woolen yarns; they are also ideal for spinning short, slick fibers like angora, cashmere, and cotton.  We will be learning these techniques with wool roving provided by the guild, although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.  This is a great workshop for a comfortable beginning spinner who is looking for the next step.

Also if you're going to display any articles or skeins of yarn for the Burchfield Fiber Arts Exhibit, please bring them to the Feb. meeting.
