The retreat is October 18-22. The price includes two days of classes,class materials, lodging, meals, a weekend pass to the Sheep and Wool festival and a goodie bag.
Beth explains the whole weekend in this post.
This is a great opportunity to take classes with Beth. She won’t be teaching much in 2019 because she’s spending the year learning and working on something new.
The classes she’s teaching are ones I’d love to take (but I’m teaching elsewhere).
There is a full day breed study, taking four breeds from fluff to a knitted or woven sample. I need to take this class to figure our different ways to sample, that may be a little more detailed than my quick and dirty method.
On Saturday, the morning is spent discussing the ins and outs of buying a fleece, then the afternoon is all about shopping for a fleece with Beth. I have witnessed this woman shopping for fleeces – she has a magical ability to find the most delectable fleeces.
I have wheel lust. I think a Louet is going to be my next wheel. I have always liked the look of an S10, and they treadle so smoothly.
Do you have a Louet wheel? Tell me what you love about it!
