August 2020

Following the current guidance and provided we are still in “yellow” or better, August’s meeting Day (Wednesday August 5th from 10am-2pm) will be held at Butler Memorial Park in the Optimist pavilion.

Current guidance recommends that we wear masks and practice the physical distancing. We will not be able to have our traditional pot-luck, and we will likely not be passing our items for show and tell.

Please stay home if you are sick or at risk, I know it feels like forever since we’ve met; but caution is rarely the wrong choice.

The extension office is closed indefinitely following the Penn State University closure policy; found here: https://extension.psu.edu/coronavirus

August’s program wasnwas dyeing. Susan and Jen (Marilyn and Karen B too) brought a number of dyestocks. Logwood, indigo, avacado, marigold, henna, onion skin, orange jewelweed, and tumeric. We did some mordanting in the pot, but some dyes didn’t require it. The plan was to have fun and see what colors we obtain.

For July’s meeting, Judy presented the angora spinning program she had prepared, please contact her if you would like a sample of angora, or an opportunity to participate in a 1oz challenge.

Hope you all are well and have lots to keep busy at home with.

I will post updates as I get them.
