REGULAR MEETING INFORMATION:
Meetings are held once a month on the first Thursday of each month (except for August-annual picnic, and when noted below), from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Textiles West, 6545 N. Academy Blvd., Colorado Springs. If the meeting is moved offsite, it will be noted here on the website, and if you are a member a reminder notice will be sent to you. 🙂
Turkish spindling is the order for this night’s activities. Our instructor, Lynnelle Peavy, will bring a variety of sizes of spindles. You may bring your own or try one of her’s. Please note that you will take your spinning home with you but not the spindle (unless it’s yours). Discussion of S vs Z spun yarn and how to make a leader from the fiber you are spinning. N-plying will also be discussed.
All supplies provided. All levels of experience invited to attend.
Please note: If School District 11 cancels classes due to inclement weather, FRFA meetings, general and board, will also be canceled.
