June Meeting Review

Our meeting on Saturday was filled with sharing of our various Charity focused activities. They included Rip 'N Roll of Bandages, Knitted Knockers, Locks of Love, Homeless Veterans (this was a real eye opener).

Updates on each of the Study groups were given. We made note of the times and places. July and August meeting times for Second Saturday Spinners will be announced on the Facebook page.

July meeting will be at Fabulon on Wappoo Road. Dawn Hortman Shaw will give a demo on Primitive Rug Hooking. This is also called Proddy Hooking.
And here are some of our show and share items. 

Hope to see you all at one of the study group meetings and then at the July meeting.

October Workshop Planned

Dimensional Weaving and Embellishing

A Martina Celerin Workshop

October 20 - 22 at Fabulon Gallery in Charleston, SC's West Ashley

10am - 4 pm each day

Using simple nail looms, participants at this workshop will first create a solid woven foundation using soumak weave techniques. Then the fun begins as we embellish that foundation using conventional and some very unexpected materials. Using shuttles and pick-up sticks we'll add wet-felted balls and noodles, embroidery, beading, and dimensional crochet. Needle felting directly onto the woven base adds even more possibilities.
