Spinning and Weaving Demonstration
Sunday, January 13, 2013, 2-4 PM
Main Library, Lower Level, Latino Hispanic Room B
Were you ever curious about the process of how yarn is created starting with the shearing of sheep to the point when the wool is prepared for spinning? Want to see how fabric is created by interlacing yarn or threads on a loom? Come down to the Main Library this Sunday for a demonstration from Spindles and Flyers Spinning Guild, a Bay Area group. Members of the guild will showcase of number of different types of spinning mechanisms (drop spindle, wheels of various configurations and Indian sytle charkha), and a couple types of looms. They will be available to answer any questions and have valuable resources on how to get involved in spinning and weaving in your community.
The library also has a collection of books on spinning and weaving that you can check out, here are some highlights:
