A Busy Guild Social

At my guild, Ottawa Valley Weavers’ and Spinners’ we have a large formal meeting with a program on the first Monday of the month and on all the other Mondays we have a casual social night. bring your wheel or knitting or what ever you like and just have fun with like minded people.

This Monday we there was lots going on. There were spinners and knitters.

    It’s wonderful you have such a great group of like minded people to interact with. I love Jan’s sheep! I tried watching the videos but my iPad wasn’t cooperating. I look at it on my pc later. Thanks for sharing.

    Your Guild looks ace, Ann 🙂 I only heard about punis fairly recently, I’d heard of rolags, and I often use skewers to get the short bits of fibres left on the handcarders, and since they weren’t really rolags, I called them wool kebabs 🙂

We love comments and love to hear your opinions. Thanks for stopping by.
