Friday our members and those from Lorain County Spinners and Weavers Guild were at the Medina County Fair showing off there craft.
Vicky Bryg, Karen Babb, Cris Welch, Sally Vourlojianis, Carol Thombs and Cary James, a possible new member from Kent, who runs a bakery! These ladies all joined me at The Spicy Lamb for the Spin / Craft In. While the weather was kind of dreary, we were comfortable in the Pavilion. Our hostess Laura DeYoung provided drinks, some snacks and music. The best part though had to be the gift of being out in the country and being able to visit with each other. Laura and I are hopping to do it again next year. I hope you will join us!
