PFAG Announcements

Saturday, September 26, 10 AM - 1 PM, Beth Parrott will be doing a workshop on Fixing Knitting Mistakes at Knit in downtown Charleston.

Do you subscribe to any of the Interweave Press publications? If so, bring a check to our next meeting on Oct. 17, and complete an order form for the magazines you want at the meeting. When we send the order in as a guild, you will save $5 per subscription.

Judy Warren sends us heads up on the upcoming observance for the UN's "International Day of Felt" coming up Oct. 3. Felters around the world, working with reds, oranges and yellows are planning one-day park displays, hangings/drapings from fences, trees, etc. They are primarily fun, easy displays, just meant to raise awareness.

That segues nicely to our felting program coming up in November. The date is Nov. 21. Our program in Oct. will be new and different for almost all of us -- a Japanese paper spinning technique called Shi-fu. Should be fun.

We have heard from the Masaru Tapestries Cooperative and the weaving class we raised money for is in progress. A new Peace Corps worker is our contact now and she is just getting her bearings. She sent the picture above of one of the students at work. Carl Tretton, who brought the project to our awareness initially, is planning to go back to Lesotho in the near future and is planning to check in with the Co-op.
