We are already off to a great start with the new project. We have a floor loom, sewing equipment, and lots and lots of fabrics. I am so excited about the summer program with our students. We have great teachers who have voluteered their supersized skills and time.
Special note****Donated by LucyW: 5 trashbags full of various cotton loopers for the rugs. Thanks Lucy!
Our first session starts with:
Wools to warmth
Hats, sweaters, scarves and booties. How does the fiber get from the sheep to the finished product? Let's find out! We will start our adventure at the farm with the wool and finish with a project such as a hat, a washcloth, a scarf, or a pair of socks. No matter your skill, you will have lots of fun and learn something you will never forget. Come play with us!
