We received awesome donations of fiber from Knitted Wit, Upstream Alpacas, Urban Fiber Arts, Opulent Fibers and a little ball of superfine merino from Pear Tree Yarn of Australia through Urban Fiber. Unicorn Fiber sent us samples of all three of their products - Scour, Wash and Rinse. Bethany gave a lovely cowl pattern as spinning inspiration. The bags were donated by Angela, Duffy and Tracy. Finally, I made drop spindles out of yellow heart, curly maple, black walnut and purple heart.

|Lisa C teaching Terrie how to use the drop spindle from her goodie bag. She liked it a lot more than her big clunky spindle and is now looking for a used wheel to purchase.|
|Tracy taking a break from her wheel with her Turkish Delight, giving advice to another new drop spindler (I'd gotten her started, but have forgotten her name). Nicole had her Turkish Delight.|

I think it was an awesome day and look forward to organizing next year's!
