Gathers & Weaves
First Meeting and Project:
Windfall of Fiber:
In late May we started processing some large rescued yuccas. They can be used for coiling or twining. It will take some time to process it all. At nearly $20 for 2 ounces, when you can find it, it pays to process it yourself. Pictured below is Pamela Zimmerman with one of her yuccas.
