Some larger items that have been most generously donated include:

Pat H. is donating a picker made by her husband, but it's an exact copy of the Li'l Dynamo Wool Picker, sells for about $150.00.  Her husband is a very good carpenter so I'm sure it's excellent quality.  The Woolery's box pickers, which don't look any different, sell for over $300.00. 

Pat is also donating a 1# clean Alpaca fleece, a 1.2# clean Llama fleece, and two? raw Llama blankets.

Pat M. donated 1100 yds. of Irish yarn from Studio Donnegal that she purchased on her trip to Ireland last fall. This is the same yarn sold in the US as "Tahki Donnegal Tweed", however the light blue color is one she's never seen in the US shops. This is worsted weight and should be enough for a sweater.

Sue P. is donating (among other things) "The Spinner's Dream Basket" which will include a variety of fibers totaling about 12 oz., all local and natural colors, and a handmade spindle, this is a $70.00 value.  

Sue is also offering a subscription to her Barn Dance Fiber Club–3 oz. of the fiber of the month for 3 months, a $65.00 value which includes shipping. It's for September, October and November.

We also have a Spinning Wheel Lamp, a vintage handmade Birdhouse, and a large Sheep stuffed animal.

If anyone else has any large ticket items, please let us know if you can. If you can't make it and are interested in any of these items, let Liz know and she can put bids in for you.

So bring items for the auction, money (!!), your spinners' challenge, a dish, and your wheel, if you think you will have time to spin. There will be plates and silverware, but you can also bring your own. There are some birthdays, so there will be cake!!
