I kept seeing people make their own blending boards. I didn't want to go through the trouble and didn't see it being much more cost effective.
I talked to the Clemes fellas at SOAR Chicago in 2013 about their blending boards, the cloth, and a little bit about carders. I was convinced at that point that the cloth that was available to me wasn't worth it for sure at that point. I walked away with a new brush for packing and some serious perspective on how few manufacturers are making quality carding cloth. Unfortunately, I was a very new mom and Joe's work circumstances weren't great so it was not the best time for me to buy new equipment.
Spinoff had a beautiful cover this issue with punis featured and Gretchen and I both were pretty smitten. I know she really wanted to try one and I was wanting to see if we could get a few in the department but still had very little experience on one.
Clemes & Clemes was just across the room from me sharing a booth with Brooke from Sincere Sheep at PLY Away.
|do you see them there just taunting me! Not to mention Brooke's yarn which I also came home with...|
|Roy, Brooke, and I at the beginning of tear down.|
