Inspiration for the Guild Challenge
The topic of this year’s challenge is “Tops.” The September program will be a presentation of many tops which could be used as inspiration for the challenge. It will include examples of handspun, knit, woven and felted tops along with a discussion of factors to take into consideration when planning and constructing tops. We are also encouraging members to wear their own hand made tops to the meeting and join in on the discussion.
Beth Abbott will use her considerable knowledge of Icelandic sheep in this presentation on the history of these sheep and their introduction into Canada. She will also discuss spinning this fiber and will show us samples. Beth is considered the Canadian expert in this field and has written a book on the topic.
