Spinner's Flock

Lynne let me tag along today to the monthly Spinner's Flock meeting. Great fun! I have been wanting to go for about, um 5? 6? years... yep, I'm a big wussie!

Anywho, there were LOTS of people there

As talented as you are I would think you'd be a fantastic spinner.
Go for it!

Oh boy, that looks like lots of fun. Look at those balls of fiber there! ooooh......

So what are you going to do with your other wheel? Did you buy the lendrum yet?

Join the group. I have found that spinners and weavers are a special breed. My group is happy to share information and I just love the support that we spinners give to each other.

I am sure that in no time at all you will make heaps of new friend and learn enough to keep you busy for a while.

Mel, I have not bought the Lendrum yet. I have to save a little money first & then I am going to have to sell the Louet to raise the rest. :)

That's the scary part, selling the Louet before getting the Lendrum... eek!

What a great post! I am glad we went, too. Always more fun with a friend.

A nice thing about the flock is there is no pressure to join - you can keep coming to meetings, and people are happy to chat with you and sell you stuff. Joining is cheap ($25), and for that you get a newsletter, access to the yahoo group, permission to rent wheels, and an outlet to sell at meetings. But if you don't need those perks, you can hang around the fringes indefinitely, I think.

Yes, you can hang around indefinitely. It's a fun group even if it is huge. Come back!!
