May Meeting 2019
Saturday 18th May, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Talk by Katie Weston of Hilltop Cloud
From Katie’s website:
“From my home in rural mid-Wales I carefully select the best fibre I can find, add a bit of colour magic, and send it to spinners and other crafters all around the world.
I specialise in unique fibres. I carefully select wool for different purposes, sometimes add in other fibres, I then dye it in my own unique one-of-a-kind colours. I also curate blends using commercially dyed fibre. I try to create complex multi-tonal colours that end up as beautiful yarns. I test spin everything myself, and spend lots of time sourcing and trialling new ideas.
I’m passionate about wool, and it’s qualities, it really is a wonder fibre, with so much variety. Every breed has it’s use.”
