Freeform Shawl Project

Remember to bring 50 yards or more of handspun yarn to contribute towards our guildís freeform shawl. Not a handspinner? No worries! You can knit, crochet or weave the donated yarn. Come to the meeting to hear an update of the project. Keep in mind it will look like modern art with a Victorian patchwork look. Very exciting!
