Sunshine State Fiber Arts Guild

Wow, What a hit, our guild was a smoking hot environment with Spinning Wheels, Drop Spindles, Knitters, Crochet going on. It was awesome, what else was super cool was we had a few awesome demonstrators this time. We had Steve showing us his amazing 200 year old walking wheel and weasel. What an incredible experience it was to look at this machine work. It gives you great respect for our ancestors who had to make yarn in this manner. Steve gave everyone, the opportunity to work the wheel. Thank you Steve for enlighting us with this awesome demonstration.

Then we had Reene, a talented artist do a needle felting demonstration. She is so talented and did such a fabulous job showcasing her work and it was a honor to watch her. Renee has alpacas and teaches a variety of classes at her studio in Spring Hill. Check her out

I look forward to our next guild meeting, it will be a hoot to see everyone again. I am very excited to learn navajo plying. Eileen will show us how at the guild. Thank you to all that came to the guild, without you our guild wouldn't be what it is today.

Many Blessings always,
