Study Groups meet THIS WEEK due to Easter

Hi everyone!

Given that our spinning study meeting next Wednesday is right before Easter, and St. Peter's has Easter schedule changes for their campus, we're moving a few things around.

Knitting study group meeting this week will be held  WEDNESDAY MARCH 21 along with spinning study at St. Peter's from 10:00 to 2:00.

Hope you can make it!

March Newsletter correction

Newsletter of the Greater Birmingham Fiber Guild 


We accidentally omitted the last part of this item in the newsletter yesterday, about contacting Rekha Drwiega before Monday, Mar. 5 if you want to reserve a spindle for use and purchase during the March meeting.


Next Monthly Meeting
Saturday, March 10, 2018
10 a.m.
Hoover Church of Christ

Program: Drop spindle spinning
March Program - Drop Spindle Spinning
Saturday, March 10, 2018
10 a.m. at Hoover Church of Christ 
This month Karen Ford will lead the group in drop spindle spinning. The drop spindle is an amazing invention; both ancient and portable, yet still providing a great way to spin yarn. It is the perfect gateway tool into the world of spinning! We hope that you join us, whether you've never spun before or are a seasoned spinner! We look forward to sharing our love of spinning with everyone!
The guild will be providing approximately 1 ounce of BFL top (sheep wool) per member. If you require other fibers, please bring them with you.
If you already own a drop spindle, please bring it in with you. A limited number of beginner drop spindles will be available for use during the program (top whorl, 1.8 ounces). If you would like to keep your beginner spindle, the guild will be offering them for sale at $4 each. Please bring cash, check, or PayPal to the meeting to purchase the spindle.
If you would like to reserve a beginner drop spindle for use and purchase, please email Rekha before Monday, March 5th. Remaining spindles will be available on a first come, first serve basis the day of the program.
