In a nod to Saint Patrick's Day and Irish linen, our next meeting will be an educational spin-in with a focus on flax. Sharon Kudrle will offer an introduction to flax and linen, with fiber samples to try out. She will also discuss the preparation of the fiber and its historical uses. Those of us who want to pursue linen for the rest of the evening can do so, while others of us can continue spinning with our own fibers.

Our February meeting is on the 18th at 7:30 pm and will cover color theory and blending. The program will be led by Carol McClennan and Robin McElheny. Each spinner will receive half an ounce of each primary color to work with. Please bring your wheel, hand cards, tape and a hole punch if you have them. A fee of $2.00 will be charged for the fiber.

This program features roving vs. top fiber preparation, long draw vs. short draw spinning techniques, woolen vs. worsted yarn, and the advantages of each. Sally will provide 1 oz. each of roving and top for each of us to use.

This is a hands-on program so bring your wheel to try a new technique—or refresh your muscle memory—and explore the variations in fiber preparation and technique!
