JC07 Landscape Bags With Harriet Boon

The pleasure of spinning can be enhanced by using color and creating a continuous yarn which when knit forms a landscape. This is color blending from a different perspective, and the end product is a small bag reflecting a favored picture. In this class we will create a small fulled wool knit bag reflecting your landscape image/picture. Designing a pictorial yarn is fun and challenging. Note: Knitting and fulling may not be completed within the day. Proficiency Level: Able to spin a continuous yarn and basic knitting skills. Bring to Class: Simple picture with strong horizontal lines, i.e., water, sky. Spindle or spinning wheel and all its parts. Extra bobbins. Hand cards or combs if you have them. Lazy kate. A range of knitting needles that you like to work with.

Class fee: $100.
Materials fee (payable to the instructor at the start of class): $12.

Harriet Boon is a spinner, dyer, weaver, wool judge and retired shepherd. In 1976 she earned a master spinner certification and continues as an instructor with the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners certification programs. She has been involved with fibers and natural dyes, learning from travels in Europe and Asia, returning to share, and teaching workshops in Canada and the United States.

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
