Meeting This Saturday - 2/2

Just a reminder -- our February meeting will take place this Saturday (2/2) from 10:00 - 2:00.

This month's special event is a multi-person plying demonstration.  Here's a rundown of what we can expect from Penny Tschantz:

  1. Penny will talk about spinning theory with advice from experts. 
  2. We'll show a few different Kates 
  3. Erin will explain how she does a 3-ply on her shoebox Kate 
  4. Nancy will show how she Navajo-plies on her wheel 
  5. Cary will show plying-on-the-fly on her spindle 
  6. Jessica will show how she plies on her electric spinner. 
This should be an interesting demonstration and one that newer spinners in particular may enjoy.  A related resource, the "Gentle Art of Plying" DVD with Judith MacKenzie, is in the guild's library.  Interweave also has copies of the DVD and a digital download version available for purchase on their website (and they also have a good sale going on at the moment).

Also, a warm thank you to everyone who has paid their 2013 guild dues!  If you haven't yet paid yours please consider doing so at the meeting on Saturday?

Yearly dues are $15 and can be paid via cash or check (made payable to the guild).
