We Gathered Together

Wonderful skies provided much beauty as we headed to the Mountain Club on Loon in Lincoln New Hampshire this last weekend..... Muriel, Judy and I had to stop at Trader Joe's to loaded up on chocolate and ginger goodies. Need I say we stopped at the NH border to pick up some Tequila for our trip! There is much to tell so I will have to tell more in future posts.

The Gathering attracted over 200 fiber people from every state in the Northeast where we met spinners from all over the Northeast. We spent two fiber filled days in workshops on spinning, Bosnian crochet, silk paper making, rug hooking, fair isle knitting, Norwegian mittens, Shaker pin cushions and more.

Monica, Muriel, Judy and I spun to our hearts content during the evening Spin In. We also bought Foxfire fiber ( I didn't buy any at Rhinebeck so I had to buy here :)) and a lovely lightweight Forrester Spindle.

Here are some RI Guild members ( Marva and Beth) spinning away....

Check out the lovely morning view from our hotel window.

I need a bit of a nap now.......zzzzz

Densely packed with spinners! Wow. The workshops sound like they expanded your fiber repertoire.
