Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) Guild
This is the Mid Island Weavers and Spinners (and other fibre enthusiasts) blog page. The group meets the first Wednesday of the month during the fall/winter/spring (September through to June). Meetings are held in the hall of St. Paul's Chruch downtown Nanaimo (across from the Dorchester Hotel - the entrance is on the other side of the church at 100 Chapel St, across the street from the new condos). 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to come...bring your knitting, spinning wheel or other fibre addictions. Meetings usually consist of 5 minutes of business, show and tell (bring something), tea and cookies, and some sort of workshop, seminar or talk where you will learn something fibry and interesting.
We now have an email address: MIWSGuild at gmail.com

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!
