F.E.A.T. Cotton Rayon Seed Capelet

In the month of April we are hosting the Cotton Rayon Seed Capelet project in our F.E.A.T. series. Remember F.E.A.T. is an acronym standing for Fiber, Explanation, and Tea.  We are offering the same gathering on two different days and times so that hopefully everyone will have a chance to come in and participate.  The first gathering will be Wednesday, April 16th from 1:00pm-2:00pm and the second gathering will be Monday, April 21st from 6:00pm-7:00pm.

Each gathering will focus on the current project and we will discuss the why we chose it, offer an abundance of information on the yarn and fiber, conversation, and of course, tea.  Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that it’s entirely free!  And not only is it free, but you will also enjoy the benefit of receiving a discount on the featured yarn if you choose to purchase it after the meeting. -B & Michael
