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.
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.
