If members would like to try some needle felting, here's what you need to bring: felting needles, some wool roving in various colors (or just green if you want to make a shamrock for St. Patty's Day), and a sponge.
Aline and Alisa Bright live on a small farm just outside of Monroe and raise Angora goats, Boer goats and Great Pyrenees Livestock guardian dogs. Aline learned to spin as a teenager and has loved passing this love of fiber on to her daughter Alisa. They both enjoy demonstrating and teaching fiber art classes. Alisa has displayed her Angora goats and felted projects at the Evergreen State Fair since she was 5 or 6 years old. They both love creating art with fiber and especially have fun creating felted art in various forms. They will bring samples of their Tailspun yarn, needle felted creatures and tapestries to inspire you. They look forward to meeting people at this SKG meeting!
$10 guest speaker fee for non-members; $5 for members of sister guilds. SKG members - thanks for inviting friends & sharing this info with them!

It's April and we're celebrating spring and our heirlooms with a tea party. 10 to 12 teapots are needed, and about 6 to 8 creamers and sugar bowls; please e-mail Marion at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can bring any in.
