February 2011 UCHG Meeting

Meeting this week!!

January’s meeting was fabulous!! A sincere Thank You goes out to the brave souls who ventured into the cold to be part of last months meeting! I am SO excited about what we have lined up for the year ahead of us! Please take a moment to review the Events page – I am and will continue to update the schedule to reflect both our meetings and local fiber events…

Before discussing the topic of Thursday’s meeting I would like to mention that the courtroom may be in use (as it was last month) and if that is the case the meeting will be held in the senior center just to the left of the courthouse.

With this month’s meeting just days away I wanted to remind everyone to bring their hand carders or dog brushes and some fiber to card. I also ask that our members skilled in the art of hand carding bring their tools and knowledge to share. The plan is to card up a collection of rolags to be used in March when we learn and practice the long draw! See you on Thursday!!

Some online resources to get y’all excited:
How to prepare fiber with Hand carders
Spindle & Wheel – Using Handcards
Handcarding instructions from the Earth Guild
How To: Hand Carding Wool
Hand Carding and making Rolags

And a excellent video: Heads up – there is music…
