The Flax to Linen potluck tea went well - good food, not overly crowded which was good as it gave a lot of people a relaxed time to learn how to work some of the tools for spinning and weaving. I always love the demonstration of "dressing the distaff" and I think the use of the drop spindle was a bit hit with a CD drop spindle. A few people were very proud of their new found skill. Practice, practice.
2015 Aug 16 - Our demo at Fibrations Victoria turned out great. What a crowd there was. Lots of people wanting to try it out and more young people this year I think breaking, scutching and hackling. Thank goodness for Liz bringing us the tent as it was a hot day and Nancy Bissonnette getting some pictures. I printed out lots of pamphlets and they were all gone before the end of the day. I think that's a good sign that people are interested. Of course, we were at Fibrations where everyone is interested in fibre which explains it. New photos on Flicker.
