Fiber Works Guild Meeting
This Saturday we had the last guild meeting of the year (there is a holiday dinner, and the Fiber fest coming up and some other events) but this was the last official meeting.
I'm on the top right there, next to my friend Alyssa (who's 13 and spent the weekend with us, she already knits, so what else was I to do, I had to teach her to spin too!)
I took some photos of the Fiber Works Studio, which opened in May in Durango. It really is a cool place, in fact I signed up to take a class this coming Saturday...
Some of the fiber availible. All the fiber is local; one on the main purposes of the studio is to give local people a place to sell fiber and encourage people to raise animals for not only food, but fiber too. I'd say 50% of this is Churro, in about 6 colors, and I saw Icelandic, Rambouillet, Columbia, Llama, angora, alpaca, some nice batts of angora-alpaca blend, and my temptation, a 75% Churro 25% llama blend roving....I really want to try some of this.
A corner with looms, and weaving supplies.
More fiber and fiber prep stuff.
Some of the woven and felted pieces for sale by the artists; they also sell yarn....handspun and millspun from local animals.
And I couldn't resist. A sleeping cat trifecta. Tele on top, Clyde in the middle, Dory on the bottom. I love that my pets all get along.
