Topic:  Blending Boards & Fiber Preparation
Report from Tori S.:
It was a nice meeting, and I took several pictures.

We opened with an explanation of why and how to use blending boards in the first hour, then several members made rolags (a.k.a. punis) with the boards.

Carol also demonstrated dizzing off of the blending board.

We ended with a brief introduction to combing fiber and when you would use combs, but due to time constraints we did not do hands on. It was a relaxed, fun meeting.
