Join us at Oak Hill Cemetery for the Alfred Bromelsick Memorial Service this Saturday May 28th, 10am. Pay respects to the man who gave us Camp Bromelsick, Hidden Valley Camp, part of the 4H/Douglas County Fairgrounds, and an awesome Christmas Party each year. All 55 members who can attend, should do so! Class A’s (and ponchos if rainy).


Monday May 23rd Meeting Starts at 6pm

Don’t forget our meeting starts at 6pm Monday May 23rd. The Kaw Valley Weavers Guild will be there and we will go through stations from raw wool, carding, dying, spinning by hand and wheel, to weaving on looms. This is going to be a very busy and fun night of hands on textile work. Class B’s all the way (the dye is made with Kool Aid)

Cabin Renovations have begun!

Just take a peak at what the cabin looks like now! It is better in person. Remember, meeting starts at 6pm this coming Monday.  Kaw Valley Weavers Guild will there. Get ready to weave. Also if you want to try your hand at making a drop spindle before the meeting check out this website:
