Sharing new techniques and even old school methods (like deer hair spinning) are always great too. I recently got a DVD from a friend Don Ordes for Christmas that I am reviewing for his website. The DVD has been 8 years in the making and he is currently working on a 2nd follow-up DVD here in the next 6 months.


Perhaps once I have mastered the technique myself I may show it off to you all... when you are ready for it. Mind blowing it is. :)


This technique does not use split thread, loops, wire, nor does it involve a dubbing spinner, and you can dub hackle and fur at the same time. Try and wrap your head around that one now.

PS - I highly encourage the club to get this one for the library... or schedule a popcorn movie night (Pauline got your ears on).. and I'll bring mine out to share with the club on the projector.
