Show & Tell from May 2105 Meeting

We're gradually catching up on our Show & Tell displays. Although I'm posting these at the end of June, they are from our May meeting. Terry will be giving a workshop during Studio Week on how to duplicate the Cocoon yarn that was used in the comfort blanket for Margie.

The Rip-Off Artists will have a display at the Summerland Art Gallery untl Aug 8th.  The last week of May is the Eco Fiber Festival in Okanagan, WA. And we've had news that a new eco fiber mill is in the works for Oroville, WA, only a half hour south of Oliver, across the border. Yvonne brought her stunning queen size knitted bedspread and gave us the history and how it was a healing project at a difficult time.
