April happs

Hi everybody. Hi Doctor Nick.

Tomorrow is another day, and another month. Here’s our events so far for April, we also have a number of crafty things are under development.

Saturday, April 12th (at 5pm) a concert by Call and Response
(the duet of poet Dottie Grossman and trombonist Michael Vlatkovich – not to be missed!)

We have Knitting Circles, Wednesday nights April 2, and April 16.
and all weekend. Crochet, too. Tuesdays at noon has been
interesting as well.

Spinning Workshop
Learn to make your own yarn on the drop spindle.
Spindle and roving available ($22)

Yarn: Start to Finish
If you’ve always wanted to know about wool and yarn and how it all comes together, here’s your chance.
On Friday, April 18, we will meet, you will get a gallon ziplock stuffed full of raw wool. We will discuss how to wash, dry, and card this wool and make it into roving using wire dog brushes.
Wednesday, April 23, we will meet with Annie Stone and learn how to spin pre-made roving into yarn.
We will meet once again on Friday April 25, and see what we’ve done, and look at dying our spun wool with Kool-Aid.
The class will be $75
To review,
You’ll get in 3 sessions…..
raw unwashed wool, (you are welcome to bring your own)
a drop spindle, prepared roving, and the spinning class,
hand-outs with the information,
and some Kool-Aid colors.
