April Adventures

This month we have two options for WWS spinning on Saturday, April 28.

For those of us who don't have to stick around for lambing season, Pam Ramsey will be leading a group down to Tierra Wools for their Spring Harvest Festival.

Meet at Gateway (Santa Rita) park by the Chamber of Commerce building at 8AM, this will put us at Tierra Wools approximately 10. Bring a folding lawn chair (optional, but sometimes there are not as many chairs there), drinking water, and pack a sack lunch. Pam will have room for 1 more, maybe 2 but plenty of trunk space. She says that if the weather's nice, sitting out on the front porch, knitting, etc. is always a good thing. Otherwise you can kind of wander around, looking at stuff, dyeing, they may be shearing, it is always very loose but you meet some great fellow fiber people. If you are going, please call or email Pam--check your newsletter email with telephone number/email address or comment below prior to the 28th. She has heard a lot of maybe's and sort of's but doesn't want to leave anyone behind. If you can't go, Pam will be taking pictures so stay tuned to this blog.

If you aren't up for traveling so far afield, meet us at the Animas Museum at 10 am at the corner of 31st and West 2nd in Durango. We'll hang around until 2pm so either bring a lunch or we can go to Zia's--may even be nice enough to eat lunch outside.

Hope to see you at either gathering! Don't forget in May, we'll be spinning at the Pagosa Springs Fiber Festival on the 26th. Make sure to check out their website for the great classes and activities they are planning.

Spinning at the Southern Ute Museum

Had a great turnout, a tour of the new museum, and as you can see, fun in the casino!
