Welcome to Wool People!
Wool People is new student group on campus that was founded in the fall of 2012. Please feel free to drop in to any meetings to knit, crochet, spin, ect. We do not supply equipment, but hopefully everyone can share what they have. We will have tea and cookies, and will often screen movies during our meetings. This can vary depending on the interest of members each semester. The goal of the club is to create a space and time for people to work on the stress-relieving projects of the fiber arts and develop a community that can learn from each other. Hope to see you there!
Please let the signers know of any movies or podcasts that you would like to have at meetings! Please let us know if you have a food request!

Wool People is a group of students interested in all forms of wool craft. These include but are certainly not limited to: knitting, crochet, spinning, weaving and felting. We aim to provide a regular space and time for like-minded crafters to meet, practice and learn from one another weekly. The sharing of skills and knowledge will be emphasized. Meetings will consist of crafting and talking about current wool news and new techniques. Special meetings may include wool/knitting-centric movies or TV shows. The group hopes to take trips throughout the year to regional fiber arts festivals including New England Sheep and Wool and Rhinebeck to help cultivate a community of crafters.
On October 20, 2012, Wool People took a trip to the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. This is a large gathering of fiber artists teaching skills and selling their yarn and fiber. We hope to attend this event annually. Details can be found at sheepandwool.com!
