Teaching Almost Done for the Year and New Interweave Spinning Batts Kit

The Gathering!
The Gathering!

This year has been a whirlwind of teaching. I have met so many wonderful spinners and seen lots of beautiful places. I always get a little sad when my last teaching gig of the year comes up. Early next month Beth and I will both be teaching for The Northeast Handspinners at The Gathering, which means extra silliness since Beth and I are traveling together. My classes are full, but there are still openings in other classes, even the classes I would love to take with Cal Patch, superstar pattern drafting, crochet and embroidery teacher.


Essential Fiber batts



Interweave has just released the How To Spin Batts Kit that I worked on with Michelle from Essential Fiber. We came up with a colorway based on a painting, Red Canna, by Georgia O’Keefe who we both admire.

The kit comes with: 3 batts from Essential Fiber, my DVD, 12 (Plus) Ways to Spin Batts, and a copy of the new Spin and Knit 2017.



I finally updated my teaching calendar for 2017. Will I see you?

I’m spending the winter designing new classes to teach. Let me know if there’s something you’d like me to add to my class list!

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

    Can’t wait for The Gathering! Unfortunately, I waited too long to sign up to get into your classes (and 2 of Beth’s), but it will be a terrific weekend.
