FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 Hudson Valley Workshops Offer Hands-On Drum Carding Instruction

 

[Kingston, NY, September 4, 2019]  The father and son duo of Henry and Roy Clemes will teach their first drum carding classes in New England next month. Known throughout the world for the carding equipment they build, the pair from Northern California began instructing fiber artists in the use of drum carders in the early part of this decade. Having sold out workshops at wool and fiber festivals from Tacoma to Dallas to Wisconsin, they set their sights on New York Sheep and Wool Festival. While the concurrent scheduling of vending and teaching at the festival lovingly known as Rhinebeck has precluded the two from teaching in years past, they creatively scheduled classes across the river in Kingston during the week prior to NYS&W, so as not to interfere with the festival or its increasingly popular little brother, Indie Untangled. On Wednesday, October 16, 2019, the two offer their “Exploring the Drum Carder� workshop designed for fiber artists with little to no drum carding experience. They begin with a history lesson on drum carders, followed by hands-on batt building instruction with both hand crank and motorized carders, creating a total of 4 batts. The following day’s “Adventures in Drum Carding� is aimed at those who know their way around a carder, as it builds on the techniques taught in “Exploring,� with students creating 5 batts. The instructors supply all the fiber and equipment used in their workshops, with each student using one of the Clemes’s Elite Crankless Drum Carders for the day. The cost for each six-hour workshop is $195 and includes materials and equipment rental. For more information and to register, please visit clemes.com/hvw. Questions can be directed to info@....

Hi, Lucinda you asked about anyone using spindles...I will be using them; I'm not bringing a wheel. 

Can someone tell me if it's okay (or not) to also do some periodic knitting for brief periods?  (with hand spun, of course!)

Catherine

edited to add: if spinning-only is preferred, that's okay with me.

Oops!  Thanks, Shelley.

One other point - if anyone who's not on the list wants to come, you might be able to leave your wheel with us and take a chair when one of the Chosen ones is at lunch or elsewhere.

Wonderful that you'll be spindling!  People always enjoy seeing the more easily understandable technique.

And knitting with handspun adds one more step to the process, in my opinion.

Hi All!,
Have a great time tomorrow and find time to enjoy the fair. Jon Pratt will be a food vendor this year, find him, the food will be amazing. Rudy will find you and introduce himself. Ask him for anything you need. I have posted comments on Facebook grange fair posts and people can’t wait to see you! 💕 I will be there in spirit, send me photos and videos. Love you all!

Spinning at the Grange this year.

I have been having some issues with my Nano (I probably need to tighten the pulley or re-rig the brake band, or both), so probably won’t be spinning with it on Saturday unless it suddenly starts working better.

If I’m around I would be glad to do it but I agree wholeheartedly with Shelley.  Maybe we can get a group of 3-6 spinners to come for one 3 hour stretch of time one day only.  It can go on the fair schedule as a discrete, not ongoing, event.

It’s really nice that they want us back and want to accommodate us.

The Grange Fair is not far from downtown Yorktown Heights, and the dates are the weekend following Labor Day. 

My remaining concern is that last time we did spin there, Grange folk were disappointed we did not cover a larger span of time (one afternoon instead of two, a couple of hours instead of a longer part of the day). Essentially we had 5 or 6 people total spinning, and we all wanted to be together for a couple of hours the one afternoon. Breaking it up into shifts to cover both days for more than a couple of hours would leave spinners either alone or in groups of maybe 2. That can get a little lonely, and I wouldn’t want to leave my wheel unguarded (small children, tiny fingers)  if I wanted to get food, use the restroom etc.

Hello Dollies,

I sent this email out a week ago and not a peep. I think I must have sent it to the wrong email address because surely someone would have answered! So I am resending it making sure it is going out to the proper email address. 

Let me know what you think. 

Hi Spinners!

I have been contacted by Rudy Spadaro, (a neighbor who has been involved in the Grange fair since he was young). Rudy coordinates the tractor parade and displays his tractors and now he is on the board. When Rudy was a boy he lived with Silvia Thorne a longtime Croton Heights resident and avid spinner and weaver. He helped Silvia transport her wheel and etc. to the fair every year where she would spin in the Grange building. Rudy was the one who asked me to bring our spinners to the Grange and was very upset that we weren’t returning although he understood. 

At the last Grange meeting Rudy asked that we be asked to return and given better accommodations. The Grange committee agreed and want us to spin in the main Grange building near where the knitting is displayed which is where Silvia Thorne and her group spun. There is better parking there and easy access for bringing in wheels. Also if it rains there will be no wash outs and since it’s a building with a floor instead of a tent with grass it will be much more comfortable. 

As tempted as I am to come back for this I am in Maine and won’t be home until November. 

Is there any interest in this? I know we reached new members this way and I for one had fun teaching people to use drop spindles though teaching is not mandatory. They want us there to demonstrate spinning. 

Maybe someone can create a poll? 

Let me know if anyone is interested in Spinning at the Grange this year.

With you in spirit,
Teresa

Re: Grange

Carol Fessler
 

Teresa, it was lots of fun.  We missed you!  There were six or seven of us all happily spinning, some with drop spindles, others with wheels and an espinner.  Knitting made an occasional appearance.  We were In an appetite stimulating position next to the baked goods competition display and just behind the fried dough booth with its tempting smells drifting in.  It was very nice to be indoors. Traffic was light but constant, and as usual little kids and grown men showed the most interest.  I for one hope they invite us back.

All of us have stashes. I am interested it buying two braids of green top to spin and then ply with some dark green single ply yarn I have. I don't want to buy it on the internet sight or feel unseen. 

I will be at the meeting on the 21st.

Unfortunately,  I don't have any green fiber in my stash. 

I'll be in Washington State and Oregon from 9/18 to 10/1.  Then there's Rhinebeck. 
Are we planning on meeting another Saturday since we don't meet on the Rhinebeck Saturday?
