April Guild Meeting - Jon Hetts from Ula and Lia
April 15, 2021 –
Business meeting begins at 7pm. We will welcome everyone to the Zoom meeting starting at 6:30pm.
Our speaker will be Jon Hetts from Ula and Lia: Wools with Mongolian Soul
Jon Hetts is the force behind ULA + LIA, a Mongolian fibre endeavour that integrates the world of the animal herders with the processing of the fibre and the creation of yarn and textiles in Ulaanbaatar (capitol of Mongolia), and the eventual sale in country and worldwide. His presentation will provide background into the lives of the Mongolian people who work with the animals – goats (cashmere), yaks, camels and sheep, how the fibre is collected and processed, etc. and how he came to be involved in this enterprise in this part of the world. There will be lots of photographs!
