SURPRISE!!!  JUNE 19TH, 2021  MEETING
 
Hello all,
Hope everyone is well.  FRFA will be meeting at Ellen’s Pavillion on Saturday, June 19th at 10:30 am to noonish.  Ellen is happy to have everyone stay later if they so desire and encourages everyone to bring your own snacks, drinks, etc.  Sanitary wipes will be available and outside access to bathroom facilities also available on site.
 
Please bring your spinning, knitting, crochet and (hint, hint) weaving if you would like.  Also, let’s do some show-n-tell too!
 
Program:
Lynnelle will be bringing her many pin looms and demonstrating them.  Feel free to bring your own yarn to make your own pin loom sachet or use the yarns available. Or use the rectangle looms to make a bookmark, which can be decorated with embroidery later if you wish.  Lynnelle has Turtle Looms (hexagons and elongated hexes) by Blue Bonnet Crafters on Etsy, Hazel Rose pin loom hearts, Weavette rectangular and square looms, and a Weave-It square.  There will be a total of 18 looms to play with. All pin looms and crochet hooks will have been cleaned with a sanitary wipe.  You may also bring your own pin loom if you have one.  There will be an assortment of cotton, wool and art yarns to choose from.  It may also be helpful to bring a size 4mm or 2.5mm crochet hook, a tapestry needle for sewing up your sachet and or scissors.
 
Hope you all are enjoying the nice sunny weather after the days of rain we had and see you all soon!
Cheers,
Lynnelle

The 2023 IWC will be held 27 – 30 July 2023 at Utah State University USU) in Logan Utah.  Wow! They’ve actually taken this out of the State of Colorado, which is something that they used to do was move it around.  Good for them!
