Sharon Kilfoyle has been working as a felt artist in Japan, Paris and Missouri. She has promised to bring a selection of her original work to show us.
Sharon has a lively and creative personality. Come meet both of Completely Angora’s authors for a wine, hors d’oeurves and show and tell party.
Here are some samples of Sharon’s work:
Rosalie will be hosting them both a the next Midwest Shearing party to be held on December 4 2010 at her farm in Labadie MO. This will be a particularly fun event as she will host the first get together ( in years) of Leslie Samson and Sharon Killfoyle, authors of Completely Angora.
“The event will start with a hat felting workshop from 930 to 1 pm taught by Leslie, to be followed by the shearing/registration/shearing clinic. I will hopefully have 3 types of cordless shearers(Akkurata, Wahl Moser Arco SE and Wahl Bravura) and the corded Aesculap for people to try out in the clinic.( I have no commercial interests or ties to either companies).
In the evening, we will gather in my log cabin around a warm roasting fire, sip some wine and rekindle our friendships. Sharon will share her experience in France with us.
Please bring a lunch. Accommodations is available for no fee for Friday and Saturday nights ( as long as your bring a dish for dinner for either nights and a sleeping bag) to IAGARB members.
The workshop fee is $60 including materials for IAGARB members. Limit is 10 people ( 3 already signed up). Both the workshop and the shearing clinic will be open to non-IAGARB members, additional fee may apply. Space is limited to 20 people for the shearing clinic.
