Last night, 20 spinners came together to spin, share ideas, and network. Betty Shreeves presented a fascinating program on maintaining wheels. Since there are many different types and vintage of spinning wheels, Betty gave an overview and others shared their experience with their particular wheel. Lubricate, oil, and repair...but to the VERY novice spinner that I am, it was very enlightening. Forgot my camera.

The Weaving and Spinning groups combined their February meetings into one. This combined meeting was on February 23, 2010 at the Iowa City Public Library. This was an exceptional program presented on spinning, weaving and dyeing in Burkina Faso and Ghana by Chris Roy. Chris is professor of African art history at the University of Iowa.
