Butler Farm Show Demonstration 2021

This year at the farm show members of the guild demonstrated the fleece to scarf process.

Melissa, Jen, and Sue worked on spinning and plying a grey Lincoln/corriedale fleece; and Linda made singles from a Texel fleece. Karen wove the two into an overshot pattern. Melissa’s husband oversaw the demo loom and gave many spectators an opportunity to try their hand at weaving!

May Meeting

We will be returning to Trinity Lutheran Church for May meeting and project day. We will be meeting upstairs in the fellowship hall, not in the basement meeting room.

The program will be about preparing and spinning from fleece. Last month we discussed skirting, where (on the fleece) to find the best wool, and sampled some. This month we’ll dive deeper into prep, prep tools, cleaning, and blending.
