The Outer Banks Fiber Guild held it's October montly meeting on Saturday, October 14th. A couple of out of town guests shared their fiber experiences, and even had projects to share for show and tell.

The highlight of the day was the handpainting/dye workshop taught Sybil Ross (Fine Yarns at Kimbeeba). While some of the participants are old hand at dyeing fiber, a couple of members made their first attempt. Sybil did a wonderful job of making everyone feel at ease and confident that they would achieve great results . . which, of course, they did!

Here are some pics . . . Enjoy! (Mouse over and click on pics)
