September at the Museum

We had a great evening at the Old Schoolhouse next to the Dorothy G. Page Museum September 23.

Carolyn's Raw Fleeces

Carolyn Venhaus brought 3 fleeces, carders, and a spinning wheel.  Prospective member Johanna Crenshaw brought her spinning wheel, too. 

Becky's Picker

Becky Oviatt of AK Frayed Knot brought her picker and demonstrated it.  It picks apart the raw fleece a bit.  We had fiber from fleece to yarn.

Pauline and Crochet

Members Kathy, Rebecca, Darcy, Autumn, Theresa played with loom knitters making I-cord bracelets.  We had samples, and out knitting as well.

Member Pauline Hooten, also of Ididachain Crochet Guild, draped a table with gorgeous crocheted lace tablecloths and covered it with crocheted samples, books, and more.

The only thing missing was the public.  
Not one person attended.  

Maybe we're too early holding this in September, and it was so rainy!  Next year we might shoot for a bit later in the year, when there's snow.

But, we all had a GREAT time looking and learning, and knitting. An evening can't be bad when it's spent with friends and fiber!

Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed.
