Greetings unto the Loch!

I am hosting a series of Sheep-to-Shawl classes at our Monday Fiber  
Arts Guild.
(UnFinished Objects - UFO - meet at the same time & place.  Come to  
work on a project, ask for help with garb, do some research - or  
simply enjoy some companionship.  I've recently been given a stack of  
good cloth, to offer to those trying to put together a new outfit.)

This Monday (5/19), we are making wool combs.  Estimated cost is $5  
for a set.  (I am pricing the wood today.)   Earth Guild sells these  
combs for $49 (See http://www.earthguild.com/products/spinning/ 
indigoho/indigoho.htm).  If you plan to make the combs, please RSVP  
<wyllowmacm at netscape.net>, so I can ensure that I have enough  
supplies.  I'll plan for a few extra, in case you entice a friend  
along at the last minute.

Next Monday (5/26) is Memorial Day, and I will be traveling back from  
Steppes Warlord.  If the road is swift, I'll teach a simple class on  
carding/combing wool and offer help with garb-making.  Please call  
(281-316-0764) after 6pm to ensure I made it home.

The first Monday in June (6/2), I will teach another class on carding/ 
combing wool.

Then will come the spinning.
Then the dyeing.
Maybe some felting.
Then the weaving/knitting/naalbinding.
And finally - a shawl!  Or something useful.  You'll never look at  
dollar-a-yard cloth the same way again...

We meet on Mondays, 7-9pm, at Wyllow's House - 207 Sweetgum, League  
City, 77573.

In Service to the Dream,

P.S. These classes - especially the carding/combing wool - are also  
appropriate for children who want to learn.  Let them come, so they  
can learn to work as did the children in the Middle Ages.
