December-February Meetings

Our December meeting will be our holiday party at a member’s home. Please leave a comment if you’re a local fiber artist who would like to be on the email list.

The Guild is taking contributions for Heifer International to purchase a llama. Heifer International donates an animal gift to a family in need with the requirement that any offspring from the animal(s) be passed on to other families in order to build the community. Llamas are raised for their wool.

We will not meet in January.

The February meeting will be back at the Greensboro Center for Cultural Arts on Davie St. on Feb. 23 at 6:30 p.m. Nancy Freisen will show us how to take a sweater apart to maximize unraveling the yarn to recycle yarn for weaving or knitting other items.

October 27 Meeting

The Greensboro Weavers’ Guild is now the Greensboro Fiber Guild. Will change the website and notify the mailing list eventually!

From Sandra:
Topic of Meeting:
Kool Ade Dyeing

Each member is to bring three packets of Kool-Ade Unsweetened, three sandwich or quart size zip-lock baggies, and small skeins of 100% wool yarn or clean undyed wool fleece.

I suggest that you should bring a little plastic pan or larger plastic grocery bag and a clean-up towel or rags. Plastic gloves might be useful.
