Our June meeting is this week: Thursday, June 14, 2018 at the Hudson ValleMidwifery 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”, ulsterspinnerstreas@gmail.com).

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 ulsterspinners@gmail.com.
