Last night was a gathering of the Northern Lights Handspinners Guild at the Richardson Nature Center. I guess the 40 members take turns hosting a spinning gathering. There seems to be one a week. So far this is the only one I have been able to attend.
Here are some pics from the gathering
At the meeting: Robbie, not a spinner and working on a braided hat; my wheel – nice huh?; Diane who I met from the class; Pauline, my spinning teacher knitting; Heather, a spinner since 10 years of age! Elizabeth, knitting her handspun and hand dyed;
Later Renee joined us. She is new to MN as is Heather (kind of). Both they and Diane and I joined the guild for the great deal of $3. That money gets us an email newsletter with information on upcoming meetings, a chance to get into spinning retreat, notifications of sales, etc.
I probably won’t be able to make many of the meetings. That is okay because I also get together with Kerry and sometimes Diane anyway.
The group was nice. Any chance to get together and do some spinning is okay by me.
Now it’s time to get ready for my coffee and beading/knitting/whatever meeting that happens each Wednesday. I have a wonderful life!
