Fiber Guild meeting brings helping hands

Just a short note–I just started writing a blog for the Appalachian Ohio Fiber Guild. This group meets monthly at the French Art Colony in Gallipolis, OH.  Visitors and new members are welcome!  The blog has lots of photos of the group’s activities.

We generally have a workshop or demo of some type, as well as bring in projects we have completed or are working on.  We also plan outings to our member’s farms, as well as day trips to fiber-related shops and exhibitions.

Mary and I share our mesh tote bags.

Most who attend knit or crochet, others felt, spin or dye wool, a few actually raise animals.  Two of us are art quilters.

Beginning in January 2012, our programs will feature one of our members’ farm or studio, with a virtual visit provided by photos.  I am planning to include these as a separate page on the guild blog, so you can join us in the tours!

    Hello! I am considering opening a specialty yarn shop in Gallipolis, along with a mill for processing fiber. I would like to hear from people who would be interested in this and what kind of a need and desire there is for a shop like this. Please drop me a line and let me know some of the things you would like to see at the shop
    and some of your interests.

    Hi, Debbie, sorry I didn’t reply sooner! I personally do not knit or crochet, but I do couch yarn from time to time in art quilts. I am also somewhat interested in weaving (backstrap loom) and embroidery floss and heavyweight threads are used for this.

    Are you aware that there is a full-sevice yarn shop and fiber mill in South Bloomfield, less than 2 hours away? Von Strohm Quilting and Fiber Studio. I enjoyed a visit and tour of her fiber mill a few weeks ago (November.)

    When you open your shop, I am sure our Fiber Guild would enjoy a visit–please let us know!
