It’s March! Our next meeting is this week. Hope to see you there. If you’ve been wanting to join our guild, but don’t yet know how to spin, this is the meeting for you! We will be helping new spinners learn how to use their wheels and spindles. Bring your spinning equipment and some fiber to practice with…
We have a fun new enticement at every meeting: Door Prizes! You get one chance to win just by showing up, plus a second chance by bringing your wheel or spindle. Additional chances can be purchased for $1 each (all proceeds benefit the guild of course). We need a volunteer each month to donate a prize, so let us know if you’d like to contribute! Last month’s prize was a core spinning goody bag donated by Helen.
See more photos from the core spinning demo Helen did on our Facebook page!
Also new: Fiber of the month club! February’s Fiber was Perendale- Bring your show and tell to the March meeting! Each month we will have a new fiber for you to explore. We would love for sponsors to organize this activity each month. If you have a breed that you’ve been wanting to try, or show off, please let us know at the meeting and volunteer to sponsor it. March’s Fiber is Cormo sponsored by Paula from her own sheep!!!
Dues are due! The guild membership dues for 2013 are $15. Your membership fee will help the guild acquire more books, equipment, and allow us to have a beautiful booth at the various fairs this year. We are planning workshops and fiber swaps at every monthly meeting.
Date: March 14th (always the 2nd Thursday of each month)
Location: Ulster County Senior Center: 1 Town Hall Drive – Lake Katrine, NY
Topic: Continued planning for 2013
Activity: SPINNING 101! – You will need your spinning wheel (or drop spindle) and some fiber. Bring your questions AND your answers.
