We had our traditional December Plaid Llama sale, where both things we no longer need in our fiber studios are offered to others for theirs, as well as lovely new items made by us are for sale.

Laura Neff brought a fabulous selection of hand towels and scarves that she wove, which were snapped up quickly.

Then we enjoyed a sumptuous and festive holiday potluck luncheon. Not shown, the tables with mimosas and desserts!



We note with sadness that member Judy Littlefield passed away in early January.  She was able to attend the December meeting, and we all enjoyed seeing her, knowing that she was very ill, but not knowing that her remaining time was so short.  She was wearing a beautiful blue knitted shawl, a project that Judy had bought the materials for herself but didn’t have the energy to do.  Christine Stewart offered to make it, and she delighted in the warm and softness of it, warming her like a hug.

She’s wearing it in this picture, which this writer chose to crop tightly in the original post above, feeling (perhaps incorrectly) that Judy might not have wanted to see her picture with “chemo hair” on our blog.  But we honor her bright spirit and share her face with you now.  Her joy at being among friends that day is something we treasure.  Rest in peace, Judy.
