Next meeting:Sunday, November 15, 2015, 1:00 to 3:00 pm
Location: 1000 28th Avenue, Tuscaloosa
Topic: Spinning Sunday/Swap Day
Bring your surplus, "why did I buy this", or "I'll never use this" fibers, yarns, and tools to swap.
Generally, Spinning Sunday
is for working on projects, sharing tips and ideas, and helping each
other. Also, bring any finished items that you would like to share. We
love to see them!
Last meeting: November 1, 2015 Topic: Recycling/Reclaimed Fibers
talked about several ways that she re-purposes things she has made after
they have served their original purpose -- such as turning the good
parts of worn out socks into coasters, woven garments into pillow
covers, and how to take apart a purchased sweater to re-use the yarn.
Monica Moore announced that the guild
earned $245.16 at Kentuck this year. This means that we had over $2000
in sales, as the guild portion was 10%.
Carol informed us that the guild is now 20 years old! The West Alabama
Fiber Guild was established in Carol's living room in 1995.
Jennifer sent me a note that the guild's Ashford traditional wheel
(photo below) with Lazy Kate and three bobbins needs a new home. She
recently got her own wheel and doesn't have room for both. She'll bring
the guild wheel to the next meeting.
If you are interested, please contact Jennifer.
