Spinning At the Huntington.

Today we went to the Huntington Library for a spinning demo that we found out about at our spinning guild. I feel almost embarrassed to admit that I grew up in Southern California and have never been until today. They are known for a few high profile antiquities and wonderful gardens;
Thomas Gainsborough's "The Blue Boy",
Thomas Lawrence's "Pinkie"

and the Gutenberg Bible.

I found that the grounds and gardens are just as amazing as the library, artwork and furnishings.

We were set up in the herb garden and had a chance to share our craft with the public as they strolled through the various gardens. Randall Hayden sat in our group and we had some nice long talks about obsessions and fiber. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday. Outside in a beautiful place spinning among wonderful people.

I have a flickr set if you want to see more pics.

  4. I haven't been there either, and I went to library school at UCLA! I hear they have a great tea, though, I'll have to try it out!
