July Meeting

Tonights meeting was at 6:30pm in the Gazebo (taking advantage of the wonderful weather) at the Parkview Care Center.
We made felted frisbees. We had a wonderful turnout, including some kids. Thanks to Barb Mainquist for teaching us, bringing supplies, and being so flexible, because she just found out about it on Wednesday, oops.
Thanks to Dennis Matter for also providing fleece.
Photos to come soon...(ed. photos here! enjoy!)

June meeting?

Somehow, the June meeting fell under the radar. I have lovely photos, and I will post them, (ed. posted!) including the ones with my finished inkle band made with my painted warp.

Thursday June 3rd we did warp painting in the gazebo in the center courtyard at Parkview Care Center. We had a wonderful turnout, Thanks to Sally Stinson for bringing the dyes, and other supplies.
