This workshop was for people tired of spinning the same old yarn. In this workshop students expanded their skills and learned how to adapt their spinning to create the yarns they desired for their projects. Yarn characteristics, wool preparations, various drafting methods and plying was be covered.
We had a new location which provided ample space and wove 6 shawls over the two days of the festival. One shawl was donated to the festival to raffle. Two shawls were raffled within our guild. One went to Robin Golding and the other to Linda Sorenson. The warp was donated by members of the guild at the annual meeting and the weft spun as a demonstration at the festival. The fleece for the weft came from Fran Emory’s flock.
