Attention all weavers, spinners, knitters and fibre freaks, the next Mid Island Weavers and Spinners Guild meeting is September 8th at 7:30. It is usually the first Wednesday of the month but for some reason tradition has it as the second Wednesday, something to do with the start of school.
Newcomers are most welcome. It is in the basement of St Paul's Anglican Church, 100 Chapel St down town Nanaimo. Bring your summer show and tell projects. Show us your creativity. Inspire the rest of us. Knitters bring your WIPS (works in progress), also known as UFOs (unfinished objects), spinners bring your wheels or spindles.

How are everyone's socks going. I did two with Liz and Julie and I am running out of yarn with the blank that I made and will have to dye more. The blank from Jeanette I can tell I will have ample.
Liz is helping me learn to blog. I hope everyone will have theirs ready for show and tell. I unfortunatley wont be at the first meeting because it is moved from the first of September to the 2nd week of September and I have another commitment that evening.
Here is a close up of my sea weed skirt (second attempt).In June you saw my first attempt -I have learned lots since then. What NOT to do and how to do it right now.I just found a good tutorial on Nuno felting. Click here if you want to look at it.
Nothing like having a deadline to work for. I had grandchildren and their parents visiting and I finally had to say I have to get my felting done. My neighbour lent me a room to work in as I couldn't work with three under 5's. The baby already dyed himself orange while he was suppose to be having a nap!
I knew that nuno felt shrank 50% but should have done samples, the skirt wont fit me. It will fit my daughter who says she has no where to wear it!
