Daycrafters began as a daytime meeting of the spinners, and it has evolved to be the most eclectic group of crafters. We meet to work on some type of handiwork or UFO (Unfinished objects) while sharing the comradery of like minded folks. Last Thursday morning at Vicki Tardy's home was no exception. Pam had a hand dyed wall quilt she was binding and wanted input the piping and binding. Others had those knitting needles flashing. Betty ran over during her lunch break and was using a "weavette". An interesting weaving loom which produces 3 x 4" squares when joined together could be scarves, purses, cases, etc. Lucy and Vicki demonstrated the technique, ply-split braiding. We were also excited to see Jeanette out of the house after her broken ankle, still unable to weight bear, but her smile was a vivid as ever. And she was able to see the ply-split braiding she missed because of her fall. We were also discussing our plans for study group, how to interpret "The Northern Lights" in a scarf. One thing, this group does is bring everyone together to share that passion...be it passion for wool, fiber, cloth, or simply conversation or enthusiasm.
Vicki reminded everyone the June Potluck will be June 17 this year at Betty Shreeves in Lone Tree. Bring a dish to pass, your favorite chair and some busy work. See y'all there..
