Anyone up for another weekend like the November one with me?

I'd really like to host one again, late April or first half of May.

What would people like to do? I'm being asked for fleece sorting in particluar: perhaps we could do a fleece to fabric thing?

Love to! We we going to do felting last time and didnt get round to it, likewise more natural dyes.

Just looking at my calender for starters:
March is quiet- nothing booked there yet at all
April has Wonderool on the 9/10 and easter a fortnight after, so is probably a bit busy on those weekends for most people,
May is awful for me though, got a show almost every weekend. Bank holiday weekends are never good times to do anything
First two weekends in June are free at the moment

Not that my calender stops you planning anything, but I thought it might give an opening stage for comparisons!

Provisionally, yes I'd love to join in but....
I seem to be having a problem committing to things at the moment. Not sure why really.

If it happens and I'm free that weekend I'd like to come but don't arrange things around me. Sorry not being very helpful am I.

I will be happy to be accommodating again and sit in the remedial class unravelling another jumper.
I might even graduate to actually making something this time.
