Carding, Felting, and Spinning...oh, my!

We had a great demonstration by Sarah on the various aspects of fiber arts. There are a lot of hands-on activities in this one area. This is not an art form that I am very familiar with, so it was nice to have someone with some expertise show us the ropes. Daniel is on fire now and wants to learn how to spin.

Felting....


Tera stuck her finger with the felting needle. It only bleed for a second but she posed with her bandage anyway. Luckily another mom had a band aid...I was halfway across the room trying to entertain Michael away from the needles.
