fiber arts friday(a day late)


I went to the Wisconsin Spin In in West Bend today and took a drum carding class. It was Great!! I learned a bunch of new stuff, and Carol Wagner (the instructor) gave us tons of fiber to play with. So now, in honor of it being Halloween and all, I've gone "batty". I really love to make batts-I intend to spend the rest of the night carding to my little ol heart's content. Maybe tomorrow I'll spin.......

The classes were great fun, I learned a lot and have some cool art jewelry to wear-

Well, I got them done-and they turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. The hide was very thin and fragile, I had to work very carefully. I can't wait for my friends to see them.
I have a question about drum carders--does any one out there have a newer Louet Jr-or know anyone that has one? I'm trying to find out why the teeth on the carder don't mesh-is this something new? I know the older models do. I've e-mailed the company, but they haven't gotten back to me yet. Mine works, somewhat, but I'm curious about those teeth. Any help would be great. Thanks.
