About this Event
Join us for Fiberarts work night and social hangout. Bring your personal fiber project, learn how to use the classroom fiber tools, or how to do something new.
Regulars, bring about 15 stitch markers of your choice (see Facebook group or special considerations box below for info) for our first Stitch Marker Exchange!
There will also be a brief SIG meeting to discuss classes for the upcoming months, SIG needs and wants, and any new business. It will begin around 8pm. And there will be cookies!!!
If you want to pick up the basics of something, we can help with that. It will depend a little on who is there that night what we can help with, but usually one or several of us can help with most things below. If you have a specific interest, feel free to contact us below in the Fiberholics FB group.
We have tools/supplies for:
Random useful tools:
-wool and cotton handcards
-umbrella swift & ball winder
We can help you with, but you'll need to bring your own tools and project:
-Small loom weaving (rigid heddle loom, frame loom, tapestry, triloom)
This is also a good night to come by if you need training on one of the Fiberarts training required tools (spinning wheel, drumcarder, wool combs) so you can use them any time.
Some items may have a modest consumable fee payable to the CA box in the room.
Small fee: fiber (for spinning, blending, or needlefelting), or weaving thread (for inkle weaving that's in the cabinet) Fees vary, if not sure, ask.
Free: yarn in blue tub on top of cabinet (although small donations of replacement yarn or money are appreciated)
Hope you can make it!
