Guild Meeting  "BYO Fiber Blending Day" We've all seen fantastic batts, rolags, blends, and other fiber prep, either online, in a shop, or as part of a class. But it's not always easy to get started. Sometimes we don't have all of the tools at home, or sometimes we buy a tool and realize we haven't learned how to make it do what we want. Other times, we have some stash fiber that needs to be spiced up to make it exciting enough to actually spin.

 

At this meeting, we're going to get some hands-on practice. We will demonstrate how to use the guild's blending equipment for those who haven't used those tools before, and give people a chance to use them during the meeting. For experienced members, this is a chance to spread your stuff out on a big table with no pet or family interruptions and get some fiber prep and/or blending done! 

If you would like to participate, please bring small quantities of your own CLEAN fleece, commercial fiber, and add-ins. You are also welcome to bring your favorite tools. Also, sometimes the fun in blending is putting together unexpected combinations. You are welcome to share or trade fibers on your own initiative, but also expect to take home what you brought. The goal is to have fun, maybe learn a new technique or two, and make yourself a fun spinning or felting project for at home!
