The Wool Group has been alive and active, meeting at 1:00 p.m. after our regular guild meetings. So far, the group has shared lots of ideas and sample projects, received instruction on how to hand-dye light wool using darker shades of wool, had a lesson on needle-felting, and made wool needlecases. Members are currently working on wire-frame Christmas trees made from old Army (and Navy) blankets, which have been cut into strips and fringed. As the holidays approach, we will concentrate on making decorations for our trees and also penny rugs for them to sit on. The group is open to all guild members and friends, and there are no dues. We are just happy to share our knowledge and supplies. Come join us!
