Speed Dating for Fiberistas
The Lorain County Spinners and Weavers Guild is introducing a new event called Membership Skills Sampler Night, also dubbed Speed Dating for Fiberistas. Members of the guild represent a wide range of fiber crafts and talents, and they will gather to share their skills with other members. Demonstrations will be up to ten minutes long and will be as hands-on as possible. Some suggested topics include Fair Isle knitting, spinning with drop spindles, building a cereal-box loom, quilt piecing, felting, warp painting, and more. Demonstrators will be arranged around the room very much like the arrangement for speed dating. You just never know—you might fall in love with a new craft!
