Tea, Cakes, and Weaving Potluck
Sunday April 28th
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Featuring Special Guest Marian Dahlberg of Small Dog Weaving Mill

with a Producer Spotlight on Jane Hansen of Autumn Larch Farm

 
This month’s meeting will take a special focus on weaving, highlighting two ways to create local cloth while building our fiber community. For folks who are looking to learn more about their options for creating local cloth for your outfit, this meeting will get you on the right track! The event will feature multiple presentations to provide awareness of resources, instructors, and producers available locally. To make things cozier and encourage community-building, the event will feature a tea and cake potluck. Bring a box of tea or a sweet treat to share! All sweets welcome: cakes, cookies, muffins, etc.
 
Presentations will begin around 11:30 a.m. and include:

Information on classes led by local fiber artist and instructor, Kala Exworthy, whose classes include “Weaving to Sew” for both floor loom and rigid heddle weavers.
 
Marian Dahlberg of Small Dog Weaving Mill will present information about her services as a weaving mill that turns local yarn into local yardage!
 
And the Producer Spotlight will feature local producer Jane Hansen of Autumn Larch Farm. Jane is committed to living sustainably on her Northern Wisconsin farm where she raises Coopworth sheep. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Jane’s experience as a shepherdess and about the unique qualities of the Coopworth sheep breed.
