The 2017 Open House will be in VT on November 4, 2017 9am-4pm
The venue will be the Freight House Hall in downtown White River Junction, located at 188 s. Main Street. This building is part of a renovated historic railroad depot, providing an open event space with high ceilings, worn, warm wood flooring and plenty of room for our wheels. The historic town of White River Junction is just off Interstate 91 and 89. Consider staying for the weekend to enjoy the shops in town, nearby King Arthur Flour, Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, and Woodstock, VT.
This year we will offer 3 workshops for members to choose from.
Robin Russo will be speaking to us in the morning about using Combs in fiber prep, and then continuing with a workshop in the afternoon for anyone interested in a hands-on learning to combing various fiber types.
Carol Johnson Collins of Singing Spindle Spinnery in So. Duxbury VT will be teaching a workshop in circular (pizza) weaving.
John Crane has offered to display his amazing collection of fleeces. So far, he has 56 different breeds in the collection. For each breed, he has an information sheet, sample locks, sample carded roving, a small hank of handspan yarn, and a knitted swatch.
Lunch will be provided by Coventry Caterers of White River Junction, VT. A nominal fee will be charged for those ordering lunch, but members may also bring their own lunch if they prefer.
