So many successful events to wrap up our end of the year!

Right after our Spring Break, we hosted a Private Dining Room to have a nice meal of chicken alfredo along with a finger knitting demonstration by our very own president, Katie Cleland. She led the group in supplying everyone yarn and showing how to finger knit. By the end of the night, almost everyone knew how to finger knit and Helna created 2 very well finger knitted scarves to contribute to next year's sale.

That same weekend, we took a trip to the For the Love of Fiber yarn festival in Bellefonte, PA (about an hour away from campus) where we met some lovely ladies who share our passion and craft while showing us how to spin our own yarn using a drop spindle and a spinning wheel! We took part in walking around and chatting to the vendors at the fair as well as learning how to spin ourselves, and taking some of the free classes that they offered. We had a wonderful day in Bellefonte and it was a great trip. After learning how to sping our own yarn, our vice president, Alison Zimmerman decided she'd try on the drop spindle back at our weekly meetings.
