Archive for July, 2015

I was able to get to a couple of events this spring. One was the Federation of Spinners and Weavers meeting  that was held in Cedar Rapids this spring. I had the opportunity to meet Mr. and Mrs.  Rick Reeves, they are very lovely people. I had been having an issue with my 24″ Saxon style wheel not to wanting to wind the yarn up on the bobbing.   I had exhausted my bag of tricks, so I took it along for Rick to look at.  It took a few minutes for him to find the problem and to give me the solution. I followed his advice and the wheel is purring along just fine.  Sorry for the blurry pictures.

I bought a beautiful CVM fleece from this lady, unfortunately I have misplaced her business card. I think she is from around Waterloo.

I also had a chance to go to the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival in Colfax, IA. A lady I know from work had her alpaca fleece and yarn stand set up.
