scrap happy

Funky Carolina Scrap Club March Offering

It seems ravelers wishes are Funky Carolina's command...someone suggested she put together a scrap club together with some of her fabulous rovings. She occasionally has scrap sets in her etsy shop - well, now she has a club! And this was my first installment - what a fun little package of fiber scmibbles. I love it. New spots will be posted in April for May-June-July - FYI. The possibilities are endless, look what TreadletoMetal (rav name) did with some scraps she purchased here. How fun is that? For a coat of many colors perhaps.

On top of that fun, Amber of Life in Color, suggested maybe trying a scrappy swap - members send 4 or 8oz of fiber and $5 for return shipping. Then she will divide all of the rovings and send back 4 or 8oz of scraps. There is even a ravelry group - Swap for Scraps - come join us if you are interested. Check out her blog if you have a minute. She has the most clever ideas and the cutest baby ever.

What a great idea ~ you're making me want to learn to spin something fierce!!!
I had no idea there were clubs like this. I can see a new addiction coming on. :)

OMG... that is going to be beautiful. The possibilities are endless.:)

p.s. Do you know of any classes in the greater Madison area for beginning(very beginning) spinners? I'm just not getting the drafting part? OR is it practice, practice, practice?

What fun! They are so cute and colorful. Makes me get the spinning bug again. It'll have to wait. I brought a bunch of jurassic sized pine needles back from Florida to make into baskets first!

That's awesome. I recently heard about a mini-skein club too. Love the little bits.
