Fiber Retreat Weekend!

Classes & Events at a glance
Schedule deviation - We will be closed Saturday October 29th (still open Friday the 28th)
Spin-In Saturdays - 12-? Come join us for food, friendship, and inspiration.  Don't Spin?  No worries, we also knit, crochet, needle felt, sit and gab, etc. 
First Annual Wild & Wooly Sleepover & Fiber Retreat - October 14th-16th  (Day trippers welcome)
Nuno Felt Scarf, With Liz - October 22nd 10-2pm - $40 + Materials
Fiber Retreat October 14-16 (or any time you want to drop on in)
To me, a "retreat" means a time to get away, relax, and refresh by only doing what you want, when you want.  That said, the only activity that will be scheduled is the Duct Tape Dress Form making for 2pm Saturday October 15th

Approximately two 60 foot rolls of duct tape
Old t-shirt that reaches past your hips (one that you are willing to not get back)
Plastic wrap (enough to wrap around your neck)
Old scissors
Sturdy hanger
Fiberfill (at least one 20 ounce bag for an average female body)
or re-purpose plastic grocery bags or other stuff.
Permanent marker
Large Piece of cardboard (to cover bottom of form)
A willing helper
A tasty beverage
If you would like to make one, bring the above (tasty beverage & willing helper will be provided).
PS. Sarah says she has a lot of fun colored duct tape we can use also.
Sleeping arrangements - All my proper beds are spoken for, but there is still plenty of floor space for air mattresses and sleeping bags.
Meals - I will provide continental breakfast (muffins, toast, fruit, yogurt, toaster waffles, juice, coffee, etc).  The rest will be potluck meals/beverages so just bring something to share and keep in mind you will be taking any leftovers home with you as I am no longer feeding teenagers!
Movies - In my experience, most sleepovers include movies.  If you would like to bring a movie to share, I have both DVD & VHS in the living room as well as Netflix streaming.
Dye station will be open outside but the weather is not supposed to be real nice so plan accordingly.
Nuno Felt Scarf - Scarves are in and make great gifts!  According to my sources, Nuno is a Japanese word that means fabric.  This technique used to make fabric, involves laminating fiber over a silk core.  The silk provides a sturdy base and fabulous texture as the wool felts on and through it. No experience or skills needed.
Coming in November:
Locker hooking with roving
Felt pottery
Hope to see Ewe's Soon!

Just a Reminder!

Just a reminder.....This weekend September 23rd-25th is O.F.F.F. in Canby Oregon!  Unfortunately I will not be there.  Instead, I will be helping my Duckling & Viking Princess to settle in at their perspective colleges (or if they don't need me, playing at the lake!).  So have fun and we'll be back to our regular schedule (Friday-Sat 10-4 for drop in shopping; call ahead and internet shopping anytime) as of September 30th.
Fiber Retreat Sleepover update - October 14th-16th - This will be a no fee, potluck type gathering. Come for the day/evening or treat yourself to a weekend away.  I still have 1 full size bed (single occupancy) and a couple of Futons open for overnight reservation.  Any interest in making Duct tape dress forms?  Let me know and I'll get a materials list.
Hope to see Ewe's Soon!
