They are spinning with a drop spindle at the New England Fiber Arts Retreat, Medomak Camp, Washington, Maine. Karen (Village Books) and I visited last Monday.
The fellow whose family weaving business in South America makes these was there as a teacher.
Look at the knitting samples...
The hats and mittens above, and the gorgeous sweater below are from Hope Spinnery.
Hope Spinnery's delightful owner Bill Huntington was teaching at the retreat.
More samples from other knitting teachers and students above.
The stone fireplace in the lodge.
Students' dying projects.
And we were there with our audiobooks.
I can't imagine a nicer vacation than spending a week knitting, weaving, spinning and dyeing in the Maine woods!
