No Batts are Bad…Just Misunderstood!

Sunday February 9, 2014

Have you ever looked at a beautiful batt and wondered what kind of yarn it would make? 

Have you ever purchased a batt, started spinning and were surprised at the results?

Our own Amanda from Willow Glen Farm will discuss various types of batts and what kinds of yarn they can (or can't) produce. This is a HUGE topic that can be affected by add-ins, equipment used and a batt-maker's style (just to name a few!), so this month's discussion will be a broad overview with some examples to discuss. Basically, she wants to get everyone thinking about what goes into batt making in order to make better-informed purchases. If you have a particularly beautiful/interesting/frustrating batt (that you've made, or that you've purchased), please feel free to bring it in to share. No batts are bad, just misunderstood.

Don't forget!

March's program will be our annual Chinese auction, and we're currently seeking donations. Anything in good working order that you feel a fellow spinner would enjoy is encouraged. Past items have included: fiber, fleece, yarn, spinning tools, sheep/spinning decor, candles, wine. Tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the event. Members only meeting.
