Today was the last day of the Summer 2010 Fiber Fun Camp at Maybelle Farm! Sad to see it go, however, very hopeful and looking forward to next year already:) Thank you to all the families who drove their cherubs to the farm. We had a wonderful time. The laughs, learning and good times will be remembered for a long time to come.
I was so proud of all the kids. They worked very hard and I hope we have developed some fiber fiends. There will be many classes to come this fall and winter. Any thoughts, suggestions or wonderful comments, just let us know. We are pretty open for classes you would like to take. Remember.....s p i d e r w e b s!

What a day it was. My favorite today....wet felting. The kids did a wonderful job. The littles did better than I have ever seen this age perform. Amazing! Their geodes were wonderfully colorful and felted amazingly firm. The olders felted flowers and soaps. Super outcomes where effort was put forth. Wet felting is hard work, but the super projects produced were incredible. Just LOOK at these pics! Great effort everyone.

Day Three: Ok, so you ask, "where is day two"? Well I forgot my camera. Yea, I know....well what is done is done. The kids learned how to use a drop spindle. What tremendous success. I have never seen a group catch on so quick!
Now day 3. Learned how to take off the yarn from the spindles. We used niddy noddys, friend's hands and chair backs and legs. Now there is no excuse to not spin. lol They have done it all. So proud:) Then, we learned how to needle felt....felted angels and techniques for making eyes, hair and armatures for arms, legs etc... We aquired 2 more students for the afternoon class today. Hopefully they will join us for wet felting tomorrow!

Ok folks. Second round of Fiber Fun Camp! There are 10 total this time, just one shy of the July class. Looks like this will be a dusey week. Loads of fun. Today we dyed wool with kool-aid, food coloring and easter egg tablets. We also used the sun to heat up some pots. Then we spaced dyed along with tye dye methods. Too much fun to mention! It is drying as I type this and hopefully will be dry in the morning, because we have some spinning to do! Day two is drop spindle. WEeeeee.
