She invited us into her “studio” (a.k.a. basement) where she keeps a whole arsenal of fibres, natural or dyed, all ready to be spun. Friedl showed weavers like me, who have never used a drum carder, how to card fibre. She also passed on some good ideas on how to organize ones “stash”.
Thank you, Friedl, for sharing this with our group. I am sure weavers and spinners alike had a very interesting morning (except for the members who were terribly allergic to her cat!).
Sometime soon I plan to post more information on the workshop on “Thrum Mittens”, “Latvian Card Weaving” “Colour: Importance in Design” and much more!
Have a great fibre week!
