Program Listing – 2022/2023

October 4, 2022

I am very excited to say that our speaker this month will be Beth Showalter.

Beth completed the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners (OHS) Spinning Certificate Program in 2014 with Distinction, and will be speaking about spinning Alpaca fiber.

This is a hands on presentation, and members are encouraged to bring their hand cards and spinning wheels to the meeting.

Beth will have small fiber kits available for members to purchase at a cost of $5, which will allow members to quite literally get a feel for Alpaca.

If you would like to know more, you can find Beth at www.bethshowalter.ca.

We will also be hosting a swap, for anyone who wishes to participate. Members may bring in one or two items (yarn or fiber, of any type, with a retail value of $20-$40) to the meeting. For each item you bring, you will get your name in the random draw. After Beth speaks, we will draw the names, and when your name is chosen, you may go and choose a new item to take home.

If anyone has questions, feel free to email Kathy Broughton, at kathy@rocklakeweaving.com.

November is “Bring a fibre Friend” month!

Members are encouraged to invite a fiber friend along to the meeting, at no charge. Fiber Artists often “cross borders” between the different mediums, so invite your felting, knitting, crocheting, rughooking, quilting and other fibery friends to join us, and learn more about weaving and spinning!

Nancy Latchford will be speaking on colour, and how it relates to the fiber arts.
