Fr our November meeting, we welcomed a wool spinner to share a technique that may not be firmly associated with quilting. But since many members bring knitting or crocheting to work on at the meetings, clearly there is a connection!
Of course, before we got to that, there was show and tell! I apologize f any of the pictures are mislabeled! Blogger puts the pictures in a pretty random order and sometimes I mix up which one was which when I read my notes on who made what.
Carol Farkas is happy to have finished this king-sized quilt early! It's a Christmas gift!
The quilt on the right is a photo of a coleus in Elaine's garden, which Elaine had printed on fabric by Julie Brandon, aka Red Dog Enterprises.
Martha was given a box of scrap squares by a friend. She made pinwheels, then set them with neutral fabrics to make a donation sized quilt for community service.
Tegan Leach, from Holley, came in and set up a whole weaving studio to show us how she makes the yarns she uses in her crafts.
She also walked around the room, demonstrating the "drop spindle" technique- and probably answering the same questions over and over- to small groups of us in the audience since it was the best way for all to see her!
You can see more of Tegan's yarns and fibers at:
We hope you'll join us for the annual Christmas party on December 9. No dish to pass, but do bring your own place setting! We'll enjoy breakfast pizza and assorted other goodies. (Donations welcome to offset the cost)
