April 2013 Meeting

Hello Spring! (maybe) seeing as the weather is being downright ornery in some places.  We had a nice meeting Saturday April 27th with 5 members in attendance.  Reba, BJ, Alysha, Melody and Kim.  As always we had lunch and social time :-) Melody brought her Studio 360 carriage that was locked up so we fired up the blow dryer and oil bottles.  We got one drum to spin, but the other one is locked solid.  Alysha volunteered her husband to look at it further! Reba, BJ and Kim had been to the Spring Fling in Peru, IN and told how much fun they had and lots of new things that were learned.  Kim was very smitten with the wire knitting class we took and brought samples to show us!

She found the perfect wire to use online

Alysha showed us her ruffled scarves and explained the difference in the ways they can be made.

Then gave us a demonstration on how to do these on the machine using the garter bar.  It looks very easy once you get a good rhythm going :-)

We sure did miss our members who were unable to make it.  It was an awesome meeting and I can't wait till our next meeting on June 1st!
