Fiber Art Demonstration at Written Words Bookstore, Saturday, April 2

Written Words Bookstore in Shelton is having craft demonstrations this Saturday, April 2, 2011 from 12 noon-3 pm. Darlene Mingrone of East Village Farm in Shelton will be demonstrating spinning wool on a spinning wheel. Mingrone uses natural hand-processed fibers from the farm she owns with her husband Bob Mingrone--they keep sheep, llamas, alpacas & angora rabbits for their fiber (they raise chickens, too--their eggs are fabulous.) There will also be a knitting demonstration by local knitting teacher Diane Kapoor (who teaches knitting in several levels at the bookstore), and a chef's demonstration with Leah Kapoor.

Written Words has become a community meeting place in Shelton's White Hills. Dorothy, the owner, hosts author events, fiber crafts and foreign language classes, and book discussion groups. She always has local books and local handmade gifts on hand, along with new books in all genres, and she can special-order anything.

The event is free. Written Words Bookstore is located in the White Hills Shopping Center, 194 Leavenworth Rd., Shelton, CT.
