Yarn Festival at the Mill

The Warkworth Spinners and Weavers guild was well represented today at the Yarn at the Mill Festival in Castleton. We had nine spinners demonstrating our skills and fielding questions from the visitors. We had a very comprehensive display table with spinning, weaving and knitting items along with natural dyed wool from Marie. Grace did a skirting demonstration after a shearing demo and Jackie did a sock knitting machine demonstration. As you can see from the pictures it was a rather cool day but highly enjoyable. We had many people interested in what we do and several showed interest in becoming new spinners.

Beginning a New Year 2018-19

We take a break for the summer months and come back in September by gathering for a retreat at the Elmhirst Resort on the north shore of Rice Lake. We held our meeting, dyed wool and locks, and Chris Muir did a workshop on basket making. The weather was hot, hot, hot but we had a creative and enjoyable time.
