A busy summer for Spindles & Flyers Spinning Guild (California)
A busy summer kept the Spindles & Flyers Spinning Guild (California) on the move participating in a variety of activities. Among a long list of events were the Monterey Wool Auction and Judging, spinning plant fibers at an arboretum, Stitch n' Pitch with the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland A's, the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, Spinners Day at Retzlaff Winery, the Spinners Picnic at Westside Farms, and the county fair. The June meeting was a Spinners Gathering entitled "Sit Some/Spin Some/Snack Some/Yak Some" with the specific purpose of learning more about each others' interests as well as sharing knowledge of these with each other. Members were asked to come prepared to ask or answer two questions: "Ask me about . . ." and "I'm interested in. . . ." The invitation requested that members bring finger foods with their preferred spinning devices.
