Spinners

When someone tells you there is nothing to do…they don’t live in Sequim. There are many things to do every weekend. Last weekend the grandkids and I stopped by the Shephard’s Festival at McClary Hall. These ladies were demonstrating how to turn wool in to yarn.

I’m back this evening from a 5 day quilting retreat at Ocean Shores with “The Loose Threads”. Did I mention I am good cameraless? I know…enough whining. Hopefully it will be there when I arrive home.

  1. That’s nice and interesting. busy with spinning. Thats rare too. What after that? Is the yarn used to knit something?

  2. I have never seen such a group and only saw spinning wheels in museums.

    Today, I published a nest photograph and some details about its construction; and a link to some dead birds with an explanation. Oh; and thanks for coming to my blog and leaving comments. I do appreciate it.

  3. Isn’t it interesting to see people sitting together to spin, and probably to talk and share ideas as they do so. I’ve thought of spinning as a solo activity, one that puts one in a meditative frame of mind. This photo jolted me out of that too-limited view of spinning.
