Greetings to the list;
Caid Festival of the Rose/Dreiburgen Summer Arts on Saturday, July 11, will be hosting a fiber arts get-together and demo with a Japanese theme. If you have ever wanted to try kumihimo, or even just see kumihimo and the tools that produce the braids up close, come join us!
I will be bringing a couple of marudai, a takadai and an ayatakedai and demoing on the takadai and ayatakedai during the day. The marudai will have braids set up so people can try their hand. Other members of our kingdom's fiber arts group will be bringing marudai and kumihimo cards/disks and teaching.
