[CAL] 12th annual Bobbin & Weaving

12th Annual Bobbin & Weaving, February 20, 2009, Friday (after work hours), 21st, Saturday & 22nd, Sunday.

*A'ine nic Taillieur's Manor* Aine's home is in Grain Valley, MO, just East of Kansas City, South of I-70.

Bring your latest project and join us for a weekend of fun. A number of people have offered to teach just about anything you would like to learn to do, such as bobbin lace, kumihimo, tablet weaving, netting, spinning, knitting, nalbinding, sprang, etc. Contact Johanne (johannefg@thelabyrinth.net) ahead of time for info on supplies you might need for learning a new art or craft, or if there is something in particular you would like to learn or teach..

Friday night is for arrival, visiting and settling in. Saturday will be spent visiting and working on projects or swimming . . . yes, swimming. A'ine has an indoor pool, so bring your suits. There is also an elevator for those of us who are stair challenged. We will have a pot luck Saturday evening, movies in the theater or more work and visiting if you prefer. Sunday we usually make a run to Yarn Barn and have lunch in Lawrence, KS. You are welcome to come all weekend or just one day.

This year Seamus and Sinead O'Cearbhaill will be teaching a hand-sewn, tent making class. I understand that at the end of the class, you will end up with a nifty bag/sampler of the techniques used to make a tent. I am still waiting for a list of supplies and equipment you may need to bring to take this class. I will post the info as soon as I get it.

There are ample kitchen facilities and refrigeration. Bring your own snacks and drinks and something for the potluck on Saturday. We never coordinate it and it is always exceptional. There will be plenty of space for sleeping, but bring your own sleeping gear. There will be plenty of table space and chairs, but if you want to be assured of comfort, bring your favorite portable chair.

For those of you with allergies, there are no indoor animals (unless you count the occasional bunnies that attend). If I have forgotten anything, which isn't uncommon these days, just contact me, johannefg@thelabyrinth.net or at my phone numbers listed below..

It has become a custom to make souvenir dubis bags for this event. Many more people have expressed an interest in coming this year than usual, so it would be nice to be able to get some sort of head count (read RSVP), if at all possible. If you think you might be coming, please let me know ahead of time so we can make sure we have enough bags to go around.

Hope to see many of you there,

Johanne
