January is shaping up to be quite the month for me. First there is Winter Wool Fest in Wamego, KS on January 12th, hosted by The Wicked Witch. My yarn will be available for sale, and hopefully a bunch of new spinning fiber. I have some Falkland on order, I hope it gets here in time!
Speaking of spinning fiber, I am teaching my first ever spinning class this month. It’s an intro class, so bring your wheel if you have one and if you don’t and you still want to take the class, we can track one down for you to try out, just let me know before hand.
Intro to Wheel Spinning January 17th, 2013
Materials: At least 4 oz fiber to spin, spinning wheel, bobbins. (Some fiber will be available for purchase at the class) Learn the basics of spinning on your own spinning wheel. Don’t have a wheel, but want to learn? Contact us to see if we might be able to find you one.
And some other awesome news, a couple of friends of mine stumbled on to a local farm that raises Tunis sheep. I bought some of her fleeces and because of these friends, have my first ever appointment at a mill. Sometime this spring I will have some homegrown Tunis roving available. It’s gorgeous stuff. I can’t wait to show you.
