We have a lot of great ideas for the next couple of months:
In March, we will be spinning on the 31st at the Southern Ute Cultural Center and Museum in Ignacio. At 10 am, we can take a tour of the museum (it is usually $7.00 a person but if we have enough people we might get a discounted rate, we'll let you know), then we can spin. There is a tea room nearby for lunch. PLEASE RSVP by March 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending -- we need to let the museum know how many people are coming so they can put us in the appropriate space. For directions and information, check out their website at succum.org.
April brings us two options--on the 28th, Tierra Wools/Shepherd's Lamb is celebrating their Spring Harvest Festival in Los Ojos, New Mexico (about 2 hours from Durango, 11 miles south of Chama). Pam Ramsey has volunteered to lead a group down for a fun day of sheep, weaving demos, spinning, dyeing, etc. If you are interested in carpooling down there, again PLEASE RSVP by April 27th to email@example.com. If you don't need to carpool, we'll see you there. For those not able to field trip, we'll be spinning at the Animas Museum (31st and E 2nd in Durango) from 10 til 2, lunch at Zias.
The end of May brings the Pagosa Fiber Festival, where we'll be spinning on Saturday. Check out the great classes offered this year. The Festival will be holding a Sheep to Shawl and is looking for teams of 5 to 6 to compete. The winners will receive free passes to the Pagosa Hot Springs. If you are interested, contact Linda at 970-884-0502 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This summer, we were thinking about having a picnic, maybe on a Sunday afternoon at Gateway (Santa Rita) Park. How does the last Sunday in June sound? Please post comments on this post.
Although it is early, don't forget we'll have a holiday celebration in December, any ideas for places are welcome. Feel free to post a comment on this post.
