We've had a busy fall --- lots of interesting classes. Nelda Davis, the master spinner came for a workshop last weekend. Her students were so impressed that they have asked me to bring her back for another workshop.
Here Nelda is showing everyone how to use wool combs and the other picture she is demonstrating the proper technique for hand carding. We will definitely have Nelda back sometime in 2010.
Kathleen was so excited to show me more of her beautiful spinning -- she bought some of Woolbearers hand dyed merino and went to town. These skeins are just perfect.
Lucky for me, while Nelda was here teaching, Wendy came in to the shop -- all the way from Las Vegas and wanted to buy a drop spindle. I am a terrible drop spindler, but Nelda had a few moments and got her going. Wendy just couldn't stop spinning. I know we will be seeing her when she is in town again.
Here is the result of Jill's dyeing workshop with yours truly. It's a little hard to see the lace pattern, but it came out beautifully.
Karen's Knit to Fit class has always been a big hit with our customers. She'll be doing it again (right-Karen?) and we're hoping to have her do another class as well. Keep you posted on that.
Our beginning weaving class have finished their scarves. We'll be offering beginning and advanced beginning weaving in our next class list.
Sharon is working on her Einstein Jacket and Margie is working on another square for her Learn to Knit Afghan. Only 50 more to go!
Kris finished one of her Christmas stockings. Very cute!
And Gwen is crocheting another shawl -- this time out of Zauerball.
Donna is showing off her mystery purse from She Knits for Knitters. It will be felted -- can't wait to see the results.
