Greetings unto the Loch!
I am hosting a series of Sheep-to-Shawl classes at our Monday Fiber
(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/
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
In Service to the Dream,
H.L. Wyllow Macmuireadhaigh

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.
