OK FOLKS, THIS IS THE BIG ONE!
This is the show that we get so worked up about — it has gotten so big and it is so exciting. Also, I love the Asheville area and this year we are staying at a lovely campground near the Ag Center. We have so many friends in this area that this show has become a great way to reconnect with all of them. Hope to see you there!

Thursday, October 26, classes only, no shopping
Friday, October 27 – (9am – 6pm)

CANCELLED: We Are Going to the 2017 Florida Fiber In!

The show is cancelled this year, thanks to hurricane Irma. Sorry to miss everyone, but we’ll see you all next year.


 

FiberIn Sheep

This is one of my favorite shows that we do! Yes, it is close to home, but I love it best because it is super relaxed, very unstructured, and is more like a slumber party with your friends at the LYS than most other fiber festivals. Volunteers give free demos, there’s a fashion show, bake sale, public sale table, and on Sunday morning, a “Yard Sale” where you can sell off that extra fiber and yarn to a good home.

14th Annual Florida Fiber In is September 15-17, 2017.

Canceled: April Communal Spinning/Crafting at Peaceful Paths

Hi Folks: We are postponing the Peaceful Paths meetups until further notice. We will have them again, as well as classes and Ewephoric Trunk Sales, and we will post here several weeks in advance so you will be able to get them into your calendar. Cheers! Jane

February Communal Spinning and Crafting at Peaceful Paths

Due to a scheduling conflict, we have decided to permanently move the spinning and communal crafting at Peaceful Paths to the third Saturday of the month. That means our next gathering is on February 15 at 1 p.m.

As it turns out, it is also the date that the Gainesville Handweavers Guild is going on a guided tour of the Kongo exhibit at the Harn. It starts at 10 a.m. and will last about an hour.

See you there!

When: February 15 at 1 p.m. Where: Peaceful Paths Google map: 2100 NW 53rd Ave, Gainesville, FL 32653 Communal Crafting: FREE. Please bring a donation to . . . → Read More: February Communal Spinning and Crafting at Peaceful Paths

Silkworm Trivia

More fun silkworm trivia from Weaving Today’s BeWeave It column!

Imagine flowing down the aisle in a darkened room in a silk wedding dress that glows red, orange, and green under a UV light. Scientists in Japan have been experimenting with breeding mutant silkworms that produce silk that glows under a UV light.  These silkworms have had genetic material from other organisms inserted into their genomes so they produce a silk with fluorescent qualities.  The transgenic critters have a red glowing protein from Discosoma corals, orange from the Fungia concinna coral, or a green fluorescent protein from jellyfish.  . . . → Read More: Silkworm Trivia
