woolcraft log 16-5-08
This week we were preparing all day for having a stall and demo at Hammy's "re-schuffle" event at the Pearce Institut, Govan. Writing signs, selecting display materials and demonstration projects for kids and adult alike.
Verene, Anna, Flora, Sarah and Sarah-Jane were washing white fleece (the good quality Blackface) and teasing and carding all the other B'face wool still left from the last wash. 6 or so batts! Now the people can come to do some pegloom taster sessions tomorrow!
Sarah-Jane was having a go at the spinning again, and especially trying to work out the tricky tension part of it all, so she could be demonstrating it well tomorrow.
Jackie brought the doll along she is making from the brown shetland wool.
