Our June meeting is this week: Thursday, June 14, 2018 at the Hudson Valley Midwifery Center, 14 Hurley Ave, Kingston, at 7pm (always the 2nd Thursday of the month). Bring your wheel or drop spindle for a chance to win a door prize!
This month we’ll be discussing and planning for the Ulster County Fair. From Hetty:
“Don’t forget that our featured item is a vest. You can use any natural fiber and any technique you like and the vest can be entered into the competition which suits it ie: weaving or if it is not wool, then other fiber. ”
We are gathering a team for Fleece to Shawl at the Ulster County Fair. The fair runs from 7/31 to 8/5 this year, and the competition is Saturday 8/4. There is also a Batts to Hats contest the preceding Friday night, in which teams of 2 people have one hour to spin and knit or crochet a hat. It’s really fun!
Dues are due: Our annual dues are $15, payable by check or Paypal (choose “send money to a friend”, firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you take photos at any of our events or meetings, or on your fiber-y adventures, and would like to share them here or on our Facebook page*, email them to email@example.com.
Date: June 14th (always the 2nd Thursday of each month)
Location: Hudson Valley Midwifery Center, 14 Hurley Ave, Kingston
