Helen, those are great!  I especially like the first one where we're all smiling.  And I'm glad someone took a picture of you, too, since you're a part of the group now.

Thanks for taking and posting them,

Lucinda

Fun, as always.  Conversation mainly covered Apple devices, phones, and GPS systems.  Highlights included the GPS system that switched to speaking French whenever it encountered a "Route" number, and the family whose GPS is affectionately nicknamed "cockroach."

In fibery news, Shelley spent most of the meeting planning a shawl for a friend.

Edie was spinning Cormo for hats for her family.

Helen was continuing on her needlepoint Christmas stocking (not for this Christmas, though).

Kay bound off a marvelous shawl with drop stitches and two variegated yarns.

Charlene knitted on some Christmas socks (her first colorwork knitting).

Susan plugged away at spinning Gracie's yarn for the never-ending sweater for her daughter.

Lucinda spun the second half of a Merino/tencel blend for laceweight.

Good Evening,

I am writing on behalf of the Friends of Muscoot Farm. Our yarn inventory has sold out and we are looking to stock it again. We have only southdown roving and need someone to spin it for us. Our usual agreement is a choice of fleece in exchange for spinning our roving. The fleeces we have from this Spring are Jacob, Horned Dorset, and Icelandic/Shetland. I also have another fleece from a friend of the farm but I do not have it's breed information on me at the moment.

If you have anyone who is interested in this arrangement please let me know. If you could pass it along in your network, that would be lovely.

On a separate note, we have lost touch with Annie Ambramtsev. She has not responded to my attempts to contact her and we are getting a bit worried. She was a constant presence at the Farm these past few Summers and she is missed. Any info you have would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and Thank you,
Brandy Keenan

I remember when we first moved here, I was researching breeds of dogs.  We drove around the county for several weekends, visiting each library and checking that section of the Dewey Decimal System.  Yes, things have changed.

Thanks, Jane.  I remember many years ago when I was amazed that a woman in France could post that she was looking for a graph of Micky Mouse (cross-stitch? knitting?), and she had it within a few hours.  Before the 'net, she would have had to know who to contact, write them a letter, wait for a reply with the graph - two weeks? plus knowing who to write to in the first place.  What a change!

Another example was a lotion maker in Oklahoma - "How can she ever make a living selling lotion in a small town?" Joe and I asked each other.  The answer, of course, is that the whole country [now world] is a single town.

I am writing in the hope that members of the Hanover Spin/Knit In Guild might be interested in starting the New Year with a 2019 Calendar called Twelve Months of Plant Dyes. Each page has a picture of a source of dye which can be foraged or grown during that month, together with instructions for using it. Starting with the simplest dye baths, over the year, project skills are developed so that by autumn, the reader can tackle more complex processes, such as plant contact prints and steamed leaf bundles with iron.
 
You can see what the calendar looks like and read more about the content here
 
Individual copies are on sale to America for $18 from the shop page. 
 
I’d like to let you know that for a group order, there is a discount on the price of each calendar and postage as a parcel from the UK to the USA works out considerably cheaper than sending individual envelopes. If your Guild would like to put in a group order for nine calendars, the total cost including postage would be $117, bringing the price of each calendar down to $13. 
 
Please email me at this address and I would be delighted to send you a Paypal invoice and will post your parcel of calendars by International Standard, which has a delivery time of 5-7 working days, although it might take longer over Christmas.
Please forgive the shameless self-promotion. Thanks for considering this.

Kickstarter and Electric Eel

Shelley Reid
 

Hey all—

I received a message as a mod of this group from the folks at Electric Eel e-spinners, that they have a Kickstarter campaign for a line of super-low-cost e-spinners. 

I gave this some thought before sharing it here; I know some folks don’t like being marketed to at all. But given that the company is an established name in spinning and we do share news of tools and other fiber products, and everyone is clear that the initial message was a commercial one and has the option to hit the delete button without clicking through, I feel it’s not crossing a line. So here’s the link; check it out if you are at all interested in looking. 

If anyone has personal experience with the Electric Eel spinners or the company, I’d be interested in hearing it.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

Shelley
