Another Prize for the Non-Raffle

It was a rough patch last week. During a freakish (but short) hail storm there was one clap of thunder and accompanying lightning which hit something that fried our cable modem, wireless router and network card of our "old beast" computer.
It took some figuring over several days, but I'm so glad to be back on the internets.

During my internet dry spell, I met up with nuttnbunny for a class at the local Textile Center on Shibori techniques - resist dying in the Japanese tradition - using silk scarves.

This was my first class at the Textile Center, and it was fabulous!
We used the center's dye lab with it's perfect set up of many sinks and much counter space.

Shibori Class

We twisted, braided, and clamped silk scarves. It was so fun to play with the colors, and I don't think there was a wrong choice or color combination in the class.

At our meet-up, nuttnbunny generously donated some of her fabulous handspun to the RSE fundraiser drawing.

Prize #4 One Skein of NuttnbunnySpunme
"Lame Duck"
- 175 yards of Superwash BFL in DK weight

Nuttnbunny is an amazing spinner and an extremely generous soul. She has more fabulous skeins for sale in her esty shop, and 10% of each purchase in her shop is donated to Kulture Klub, a non-profit organization serving homeless teens in the Twin Cities.

Thank you to so many of you who have donated to the Roseville String Ensemble! I am thrilled to see all of the donations adding up for a cause that means to much to me.
