July meeting

spin

Our July meeting is this week: Thursday, July 13, 2017 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!

The photo above is some gorgeous handspun and knitting by Claudia (i think? correct me if i’m wrong! i can’t remember).

Fair season is upon us! We’ll need lots of volunteers to keep the Wool Room staffed every day of the Ulster County Fair (August 1-6), and we try to have at least 2 people there at all times.  Have you checked out the categories and planned your entries? The *Special Item* at our fair this year (best one will receive an extra prize) will be a poncho. Also, ALL ARE WELCOME to form a team and enter our Batts to Hats competition on Friday night (8/4) at 6:30pm. Teams of 2 people spin and knit/crochet a hat in less than 2 hours! The annual Fleece to Shawl competition (teams of 5 spin and weave a shawl in 4 hours) takes place on Saturday (8/5) from 11-3.

Also, 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.
