We had a great turnout for the guild picnic at Tanglewood Nature Center. Members brought a variety of dishes to share and we enjoyed being able to meet and visit with members’ families. Afterwards we went indoors to do some carding and wet felting. A good time was had by all.

Since then guild members have participated in a number of events including:
– Big Flats Parks Kids’ Program
– Wool Day at Troy Fair
– Chemung County Fair
– Thursday demos at Wisner Park.
– Dyeing and felting demo at Tanglewood for girl’s camp.

The Upcoming Events Page has been updated.. be sure to check it for some upcoming events including theTioga Fair Wool Day in Whitneyville, PA on Friday, August 13th and our guild meeting on Saturday August 14th.

During the meeting we will be using some dye extracted from plants. Members can bring a sample skein or fiber ( 1 oz ) or use some of the guild’s fiber supply for this.

Shown are photos from the picnic.. check out the youngsters in the felting workshop.
