October 7, 2017
The wonderful world of Angora Rabbits can begin in your living room, basement or backyard. Join Breeder Chris Murray, Keeper Laurene D’Aversa and Fiber Slayer Deb Quesnette at our October Guild meeting where we will watch a shearing, learn to blend and card, spin a single and even make a Boucle’ yarn using this fabulous fiber. Did you know that Angora is seven times warmer than wool and so much softer!
Students should bring their Spinning Wheel and two empty bobbins, a Drum Carder or Hand Cards, & Lazy Kate. Feel free to bring and use your own angora fiber if you have some.
Fiber Fee: $15.00
Don’t forget, all of our meetings feature a mentored Beginners’ Corner.
Also, Hat, Sock and Mittens donations will be collected for St. John’s Ministry to the needy at this meeting.
Directions to the meeting can be found here.
