Meeting Calendar for 2014-15
Spindles & Flyers Guild is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2015 and kicks off with a "Zero to 60" back-to-basics year of programs.
It starts with two sessions; one devoted to cleaning wool and another session about fiber prep.
On October 26, we will be surveying various methods of washing fleeces. This will be a lecture only (no actual washing) program. Methods explored will be individual locks, machine washing, "de-stinking" and possibly suint fermentation. We will also have a discussion of favorite soaps and favorite processors and invite your input.
On November 23, different methods of fiber prep will be demonstrated with round-robin participation. You'll learn the basics of hand carding, drum carding, combing and flicking.
Both these programs are preparatory to our slate of "how to spin the yarn you want" programs in the new year. Stay tuned for firmer details about the following sessions.
