Spinning & Knitting Circles – please join us on Saturday all day and Sunday morning for Spinning and Knitting circles in the Chapel.

 

Tea Towel Exchange – we will have a tea towel exchange on Saturday.  Please indicate, on your registration form if you will be participating or not and, if so, bring your tea towel with you to Camp.  We will have a display of tea towels before the exchange.

 

Sock Yarn “Mini Skein” Exchange – do you have odds and ends of commercial, machine washable sock or fingering weight yarn?  How about exchanging some for new ones?  Just bring some to Fibre Camp and we’ll organize a swap.  Skeins or wound into balls, 5 – 20 grams each for a total of 100 grams, labelled and packed into a clear zip lock bag.  You will have enough to make a crazy pair of socks, a sock head hat or add them to your sock yarn blanket or Magic Ball Shawl.  Mix it up!!

 

Book Sale – release old books and take home some new-to-you books at Fibre Camp!  Here’s how…

Gather the books you no longer need.  Please limit your selection s to books that are concerned with yarn, fibre, spinning, weaving, wildcrafting, dyeing, knitting, crochet, etc.  Determine what price you’d like to set; generally used books sell for $2 to $15 at the very most, some as low as $1.  Magazines can be 25 cents and up.  These are suggested prices and you’ll need to figure out for yourself what you want to charge.  Keep in mind that the well-priced books will sell first!  Please provide one envelope (any size will do) per book for collecting the money.  On the outside of the envelope, please write the following, and then put the envelope inside the front cover:

  1. The name of the book

  2. The price you want for the book

  3. Your name

At Fibre Camp, we will have a table set out for the sale.  Please place your books on the table.  If you’ve brought them in a bag, put the bag underneath the table so that shoppers can us them.  At the end of the weekend, any unused books must accompany you back home, or to the Salvation Army…your choice.  Please do not leave your books at the camp for us to deal with.

 

To Buy a Book – collect the book you are interested in, put the exact change in the envelope, and leave the envelope in the basket on the sale table.  You may also take it to the person you’ve bought the book from.

 

Impromptu Fashion Show/Show and Tell – bring, or wear, a finished item to dinner on Friday evening.  This event will take place, after dinner, in the “Chapel” and give everyone a chance to see what you have been working on and get inspiration from these lovely projects.  If you have completed projects from previous Fibre Camp workshops, please bring these in for us to see.

 

Guest Speakers – after dinner on Saturday evening there will be a panel, of our workshop instructors, discussing their “creative journey”.

 

Sunday Social – please join us on Sunday morning, 9:00am – 12:30pm, for spinning, knitting, demos and conversation with your friends.
