I recently had the pleasure of joining this group of EXTREMELY talented fiber artists. I learned about the group from our very own Parrot (Doug) who is also the only other male knitter I have ever met. Since he is the only other male in the group, he is affectionatly known as the guild pimp!
After the business of the meeting was finishd, we were treated to a workshop on spinning on a drop spindle...WOW...what fun. Doug actually handcrafted a spindle for everyone in the group to keep. One of the most talented weavers in the group even commented that these were the best spindles she had ever used, and this lady knows her spindles...GO DOUG!
The best part of the day, however, was enjoying lunch waterside with Doug and talking for hours. I could have (and did actually) stayed all day.
If you ever find yourself in Manteo, North Carolina, be sure to stop by Fine Yarns at Kimbeeba, Sybil Ross's yarn shop. The shop really caters to all things fiber, not just knit and crochet. You must first contact Parrot, however, and let him know you coming. He is the most AWESOME host ever and soooo talented!
