I can't believe another year had passed & it's time for our 4th Annual Retreat at the beautiful Avalon Homestead. This year we had 30 participants & we had a great time.
We started off with Show & Tell & the highlight was this machine knitted wedding dress which took our breath away ! There were so many FOs that every available space on this long table was filled ......
......there was a spindle spinning demonstration & I learnt Andean plying
...... a yarn & FO photography workshop & I took a great picture of my mittens in a light tent
...... a talk given by a Suri Alpaca breeder & then she gave us some tips on spinning the fiber
....... a weaving demonstration & we also had a chance to try it
It was a great weekend & we went home with so much knowledge & new skills & of course, some FOs !
