Lou Ann and I headed out early yesterday morning so that we could be in place by 8:30 am. Karin met us there, and together we schlept all our gear from our cars to the appointed place. Lou Ann had a handy little wagon she had purchased to help us out with all the bits and pieces we need to make a good display and working demonstration.
On the far end of the table I decided to bring some store bought beautifully colored fiber, ready to spin. I did this so that those who were interested would realize that they didn't have to start with a fleece if they wanted to learn how to spin.
At the end of the day Karin took a couple of fleeces and I took some as well, they are airing on the front porch as I type this. I will sort through the fleeces again before I wash them, making sure I am not bothering to wash something that I cannot use.
Lou Ann who kindly snapped these pictures was busy all day showing kids how to weave on her new box loom. This was the table also held all the things that you can do with that handspun wool. Lou Ann and Karin had brought their Inkle looms, another portable weaving tool. You can weave many things with these smaller looms, straps, belts, ribbons and even mug rugs! So versatile! I wish I had a picture to show you of Lou Ann in her element!
Then it was time to pack up and go home! I don't know about Karin or Lou Ann, but I was in bed going to sleep at 8:30pm!
That is it until next time, until then, Happy Spinning, Knitting and Weaving, (or whatever craft your into!) Tina
