Spring Cleaning Swap

Our last meeting before the start of the summer season was held a week early due to the upcoming Memorial day weekend. Show and tell included lots of fun projects and patterns.

Some of our folks had gone to the NH Sheep and Wool Festival the previous weekend. Despite the rainy start, it turned out to be a fabulous day! Lots of goodies were procured in addition to some fun time chatting over lunch (lobster rolls -yum).

After show and tell, we joined in a Spring Cleaning Swap Meet. Crocheters brought in no longer used or needed yarns, tools, and patterns. Everyone had a chance to find something of interest. Anything left was packed up to donate to Warmer Winters for their use.

Spinning with a Drop Spindle

February’s meeting was a special program — An Introduction to Spinning Your Own Yarn!!!

Our own Shawna Beaudoin presented a wonderful interactive program, giving all who wanted to play an opportunity to try their hand at spinning with a drop spindle. Shawna shared some interesting tidbits of spinning history. She taught us about spindles and the basic physics of the different ones, how to turn the spindle, different fibers, skeining, plying, and twist. It was great fun. Shawna is an excellent teacher and we are very grateful to her for sharing her talent with us.
