Bring your latest project and join us for a weekend of fun. Baroness Caitlin nic Aindriu will be teaching a class on book binding. A number of other people have offered to teach just about anything you would like to learn, such as bobbin lace, kumihimo, tablet weaving, netting, spinning, needle felting, felting, knitting, nalbinding, sprang, etc.
Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) ahead of time so I can let people know you want that particular class or for info on supplies you might need. Also contact me if there is something YOU would like to teach so I can let people know. 'Aine has a huge sewing/craft room, so if you would like to bring your sewing machine and work on garb, there will be space.
This year, the fiber guild will have tables set up to paint the ground cloths we are making for the Kingdom. We will have all the supplies and materials needed. We can work on these when we take a break from our projects.
We have a wonderful time sharing, visiting and getting to know each other better. If you do anything involving string or fiber in any form, this is the place for you. Lasair will have her merchant booth set up with a wealth of goodies.
Friday night is for arrival, visiting and settling in. Saturday will be spent visiting and working on projects or swimming . . . yes, swimming. 'Aine 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 (yes, Aine has one of those as well) 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.
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 who come as guests). If I have forgotten anything, which isn't uncommon these days, just contact me.
