Topic: Spinning Retreats
I am packing up stuff and preparing notebooks for the crew that will be attending the Rip Van Winkle Fleece To Hat Spinning Retreat this weekend. Each spring I organize a project that takes everyone through all the spinning steps so they can get a real overview of what's involved. Beginners are always welcome, and they get a full 3 hours of instruction on Friday night while the "pros" get some fine-tuning spinning exercises to work on at their own pace.
We have 2 spots left this spring in case anyone wants to just drop everything and come. E-mail me from the link at Countrywool. I guarantee an information packed weekend!
