Singing Weaver and Spindrifters to Visit the Shop September 9th.



Nadine Sanders is scheduled to visit the shop, on Saturday, September 9th. She'll be here all day, presenting three different programs: Warping on a Shoestring, Beyond Plaid-- Scottish Tartan Weaves, and finally she will guide us through waulking of fabric. The photos show the 4.5 yard fabric being woven by Betsey. A design I planned using Harrisville's Highland yarns for the plaid fabric. For those who may not know, "waulking" is really "fulling" woolen fabric, and this is all set to music! A really fun, full day is planned -- we'll be going from the shop to the public labrary and back again!

The local spinning group, Spindrifters will be holding their monthly Saturday meeting at the Shop as well. They'll bring their spinning wheels, spin, and join in the festivities. WOW! What a great way to start the fall time festivities! Knitting, spinning, weaving -- and it's the shop's anniversary time too!

Congratulations on your first anniversary, Nan! Time has gone so fast. The shop is coming along well, with wonderful classes offered (Intermediate Weaving has been awesome!) & the continuing enjoyable Knit Nights. The most wonderful people come every Tuesday night. I always look forward to gathering with such a diverse, talented and encouraging group of people.

Saturday was incredibly fun. It was so cool to see the reaction of people passing by in cars and on the sidewalk, too. The shop isn't just a shop--it's an institution, a community resource and a fantastic place to meet new and old friends. Thanks, Nancy!
