Sacramento Weavers Spinners Open House

Here is a few pictures from the Sacramento Weavers & Spinners Guild Open House. Here are some of the Saturday Group members during a short break in the day. We had a lot of visitors to our table.

Here is Wil Taylor spinning flax on a wheel. We rarely see anyone spinning flax on a distaff. The little cup is for water he uses to wet his fingers then wets the flax to soften it for spinning into linen.

There was a loom set up for members of the public to try weaving.

We had some little cardboard looms to give introductory lessons to wannabe weavers.

More pictures to follow.

It was a good two days!
