SWAY Art Yarn Festival Materials List

We are so happy to have you join us (Suzy and Arlene) for our two day Colour Celebration workshop in Sarasota this April! Here are the things you will want to bring along:

  • Any blending tools you have such as hand combs, carders, drum carders, flick carders, and hackles
  • A diz (even a washer from the hardware store will do)
  • Dyed fibers of any kind in the basic primary colours (red, yellow, blue). You can add to this with a range of different kinds of primary colours such as turquiose, fuschia, lemon yellow, or earthy colours such as ochre, navy, marsala etc. Also bring a little black and some white for blending.
  • Please try to include in your fibers a mix of locks and textures along with processed roving and top (totalling at least a pound).
  • Any sparkle and bling you have in your stash
  • Bring any roving and batts that you dislike! We will show you what to do with these!
  • Corespinning thread such as a laceweight mohair of woolen yarn
  • Threads suitable for autowrapping (fine and or sparkle/effect threads)
  • Scissors
  • Niddy noddy
  • At least three bobbins
