Jillian’s Spinning: Classes in My Own Backyard

It really is shaped like a mitten!

I am guilty of ignoring things that go on in my own fiber backyard. I dream of Maryland Sheep and Wool, Rhinebeck, Taos, Madrona, but events that are closer to home I tend to ignore. I’m not sure why. Maybe because they don’t seems as special if I’m not traveling for days (and spending all that extra money to travel)? This year it changes. In August I’m going to take classes at the Michigan Fiber Festival.

It looks like there are 60 classes to choose from.  There are several classes that I want to take and most of them are at the exact same time, so I’m mulling. I know I want to take one of the weaving classes offered and a spinning class with Ester Rogers, beyond that it’s still misty.

Are you taking classes close to home this year?

Jillian is the​ author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor​ of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts. She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing. Spy on her on her website jillianmoreno.com

    Not yet this year, hoping to later this year about 4 hours from home. Did and will enjoy several markets at regional events!
