Spin-In Thursday April 28, 2016

April 28      Coffee Corners this week! 

Starting time is 6PM, but come when you can and leave when you must.

Join us for a casual gathering. Bring your spinning wheels, knitting, crocheting, needle felting, mini looms or any portable project.  This is a wonderful opportunity to hone your spinning skills-or to learn, if you’ve been itching to discover the excitement of making your own custom yarns.  Free spindle kits provided!  It’s also a relaxing and fun way to introduce a friend into this simple yet satisfying skill.

Fall Workshop update – only 5 places left!

Plans are going strong for our Fall Rigid Heddle workshop with Constance Hall – at present we have 15 of the 20 places filled with excited students.  If you’ve been thinking about joining us but just haven’t gotten around to it, I hope this will be just the encouragement that you need.  Look for the workshop flyer under the Workshops tab.

Since we are getting down to the end of registration, please contact Nancy Curtiss for availability of space.  Once we’ve reached our student limit we’ll begin a waiting list for those interested.  Notification of openings will begin August 2, after we’ve reached the deadline for balance of deposit with the existing list of students.  This is sure to be a fun and dynamic workshop – and a great chance to make some new friends as we’re now getting registrations from people outside of the guild.  I hope that you can join us!
