Did you miss this month’s meeting? Here’s a short wrap up.
Christine from Treasure Goddess Yarns joined us for a trunk show of her beautiful yarns and kits.
She has graciously offered members a discount to her online shop through 4/30/2023. Log into your member dashboard to find the code.
Tom Dennis of Tarndie joined us all the way from Tarndwarndcoort, Victoria, Australia (15 hours ahead of us in Minnesota!) to share the story of his family’s history with Polwarth yarn. While many of us think of merino when we think of Australian yarns, Polwarth sheep are uniquely adapted to the region where his family lives and farms.
Tom has graciously reduced shipping costs to the US, so take advantage of adding some Polwarth yarn to your stash. You can learn more about Tarndie and shop for their yarn here: https://www.tarndie.com/
The Programming Director position still remains open on the board.
