January 20th Spinning Meeting 
Main Guild Saturday Meeting

January is a member led meeting with a spinning theme. We have asked members to bring in any interesting old or new spinning wheels they have so that we can see the huge variety that is out there and in an informal way hear a little bit about them from their owners.

We have two member led workshops:

Support spindling led by Freya

Fancy yarns led by Tanya and Carol

We will also have the Guild jumbo flyer

 

10am doors open, 12:30 lunch, 4pm chairs away

The Guild have two support spindles and bowls that can be used and will provide yarn to spin. 

Fancy Yarn Workshop

Tanya and Carol will show us how to make beehive style fancy yarn.  Please bring yarn preferably of two different colours to spin.
