Let’s go to Maker Faire KC

Maker Faire KC 2011

Maker Faire KC 2011

NGY is getting a group of local fiber crafters together to setup demos and learn-alongs for fiber crafts at the upcoming Maker Faire KC event. I have applied to setup a space to help people learn a little more about hand spinning, knitting and crochet in addition to a vendor booth. Here is the plan:

    • – Hand spinning demonstration – bring your spindles and your wheels and hang out with us & answer questions from visitors about the process of turning wool fibers into yarn.
    • – Hand spinning Learn-Along: Several drop spindles will be available for visitors to try their hand at spinning – sponsored by Julie from Bad Kitty Yarns.
    • – Knit & Crochet Learn-Along: Stop by and learn the knit stitch or the single crochet or try your hand at finger knitting.
    • – Knitting & Crochet demos – Bring your projects and knock out some WIPs & hang out with us!

The NGY vendor booth will have:

    • – Project kits for spindling and fiber batts & rovings from Bad Kitty Yarns
    • – Hand dyed yarns & project kits for beginners as well as advanced knitters & crocheters

If you want to come and hang out and share you fiber skills with the masses or just meetup and hang out then drop me a line via email, Twitter, Facebook or Ravelry. It’s going to be good times!
