Spin-In Thursday December 1, 2016

This Thursday’s Spin-In will be held at Burton Library  at 6pm.

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.

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

New Rigid Heddle SIG

Because of so much interest, the Western Reserve Spinners and Weavers Guild has decided to start a Rigid Heddle SIG (Special Interest Group).   While there is no one to teach us new skills, and update the old ones, this SIG will be members helping and challenging each other as we explore the possibilities of the looms.

You must be a member of the WRSW Guild to join this group.  If you are not a member and would like to join WRSW, the membership fee is only $15 if paid prior to December 31st; after that it is $20.  For more information go to http://wrspinweave.org/about/.   

Once you are a member of WRSW, membership in the Rigid Heddle SIG is FREE!  It will be led by Linda Christopher and JoEllen Salkin.  We are planning an initial meeting on January  15th, 2-4 at the Solon Branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library.

Please let us know if you are interested (unless you have already done so) by calling Linda at 440.781.2046 or sending an email to linda102@twc.com.  Details will be sent to those who sign-up.

For your 2017 Calendar!

Before things get too crazy with the holiday season, I wanted to ask everyone to mark their new calendars for our special get-together on ROC Day, Saturday January 7th, a.k.a Saint Distaff’s Day.

 This day spinning-women1is a gathering of friends with common interests in fibers… a celebration of the New Year, specifically for their art, and a way of paying homage to the past.

Hope you can come, bring a dish to share, a gift for exchange (if you want to participate) and an afternoon of festivities and yummy food!

Willoughby Hills Community Center (in the library) 

11 a.m to 3 p.m.
