September Meeting: Katherine from The Mountain Thread Company!

Our September speaker will be Katherine from The Mountain Thread Company. On Tuesday, September 24th , Katherine will give a lecture about her journey starting up a fabric store and rope basket business in Blowing Rock, NC.

The following morning, Wednesday, September 25th, Katherine will be giving a workshop on the basics of rope basketry. For a cost of $50 for members, $60 for non-members, you’ll receive three (9:30 AM -12:30 PM) hours of hands-on instruction with Katherine, supplies, and enough time to complete a set of coasters or a small basket. If you’ve always admired Katherine’s work but haven’t gotten the opportunity to take a class at her storefront, this is your chance! The workshop will take place in the ballroom at the South Fork Community Center. 

The supply list:

Participants will need to bring the following items with them: 
sewing machine with zigzag stitch, 
power cord, 
foot pedal, 
basic sewing kit (scissors, pins, etc), 
1 spool of 50 weight thread (such as Aurifil - needs to be a good quality thread) 
fabric remnants cut down to 1/4" - 1/2" wide (does not have to be exact).  

Katherine will provide:
100% cotton rope
1 heavy duty jeans / denim needle per participant
instruction booklet
