It was nice to meet you Sabine !!!! We had a great day. Next time I will take a hat (I got a massive headache later in the evening, might be the beer though!)

I was very glad this time as I found people were very interested by our strange activity. I had a very interesting discussion with 2 guys who had studied textile at university and one works in the Petrol business and the other in very high quality lingerie  Smiley the second one wants me to bring my wheel to his R&D department and have a go at  very high tech fibers. Isn't this amazing?

I also discussed with lots of Aussies who were all linked with wool and sheep somehow. They had a go a the Little Gem and we had a good laugh.

>> mooshie, I would be glad to meet you if you ever make it to Paris!

Dear Spinners!

We are a group of knitting and spinning addicts who live in Paris and surroundings. We organize a "pub spinning" per month. The idea is to gather around wheels and needles in a cool Pub drinking fresh beer or cocktails :-)

Next dates:

July 19th 2008 - 11am
This time it will be at Paris Plage - underneath Quai de la Megisserie, near Place du Chatelet. Last year we had a blast!
At around 5pm, we'll go to Cafe Oz 18 rue Saint Denis (the Australian Bar) for refreshments.
Don't forget to bring a bottle of water and a hat! It might be hot during the day.

August 30th 2008 - 3pm
Caf Oz - 8 boulevard Montmartre - metro Grands Boulevards.
Inside or at the terrasse, depending on the weather. Good beer on tap and friendly staff highly specialized in sheep matters, wool and sometimes even spinning!!!

Join us and have fun.

(You don't need to be a spinner to come, you can have a go if you want ;-)


(please contact me prior to coming in case of any change.)

This is a very good idea. I will try that and take pictures of the process. I will add it to my humble weaving online courses. (I will write English version for a change  Wink )

Thank you very much. I had thought of that (I have a frame loom) and as it seems that more handy looms where not created for thick yarns, it will be my only one solution.

I will post the result here Wink
