Grace Episcopal Church, Baldwinsville
At this month’s meeting we will be SPINNING PAPER ! ! ! We will have some various papers to try but you might want to bring some paper -- those that work well are thinner. Dress pattern paper seems to work the best for me (thin, tanish), also tissue paper (lots of colors and animal prints available these days), crepe paper; foil tissue paper, and any other type of paper you might want to try spinning. Some work better than others, but you can try anything ! Also bring something to ply with your spun paper -- novelty yarns, ribbon yarns, your own hand spun fiber singles, strips of thin, flimsy soft fabrics also work. Please bring scissors. If you want to do some cutting beforehand, cut strips as long a length as possible at about 3/8 to 1/2 inch width.
