This month’s large group was greeted with superb weather and sunshine! We welcomed 3 new members!
The Treasurer gave her report and newly created name tags were also handed out. Upcoming fiber events were discussed: Martial Cottle Park Spring Festival, Hidden Villa, Spinning at the Winery, and Barn to Yarn in Hopland. These have been added into the calendar for more info. It was decided that we’ll all bring our own projects to work on at Hidden Villa on April 27. Carol may also bring a completed shawl or some hand cards.
Show and Tell began with some sharing from items purchased at last month’s Stitches West.
Aviva shared her in-process sweater for her husband made from hand spun.

Cookie shared a throw she is working on made with bright Red Heart yarn
