want to take a class?

Psst! Hey Spinners!
I'm signed up to teach a workshop at New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival on Sunday, May 10th. Here's the description:

Many spinners rely exclusively on processed wool roving these days. What’s it like to take it back to the basics? This class will cover techniques for processing and spinning raw wool and washed locks. We’ll use a variety of basic tools to create yarns and get back to the way that many people around the world used to spin or still spin. Note: you need to be able to spin to take this class.

and here's the link to the New Hampshire Sheep and Wool website.

The thing is, nobody's signed up and paid the fee yet! ($35 before April 15, $45 afterwards...)
If no one signs up, I have to cancel the event. So, if you're in New England and you want to take the class, please check out the link above and pre-register with me soon! (I hear tell that a couple people are interested, but without the payment in hand...it's hard to tell if this is going to work!)

If you're not interested, but you know someone else who might want to learn about skirting, washing fleece, teasing, flick carding, hand cards, combs and raw fleece and more? Please let them know. (If you live in Tennessee, I'll be teaching this again locally on Memorial Day weekend.)

Sorry for this commercial break. Now, back to the regularly scheduled program....

Ooh! Sounds like a fun class. Too bad I'm on the opposite end of the country! I hope you don't have to cancel!
