Back to work





It has been busy around here lately. Went to a Jacey Boggs weekend workshop which was amazing. There were 27 people participating but it was well managed by Jacey. She definitely puts emphasis on the more technical side of spinning. This approach along with the incredible creativity of Lexi Boeger (Pluckyfluff) is an incredible boost for anyone's creativity and ability as a spinner. I really enjoyed it. Jacey also has a book coming out in December 2011, which I have pre-ordered.

I also have taught a freeform knitting and crochet class which included a young lady who had never crocheted. However, she did very well and learned the basics as well as some more complex techniques. It was a fun day for all concerned.

Additionally, I signed all the release forms and it is official that Lexi's new book (out in the Fall 2011) will include an artist profile on my work. I am very excited about this as I admire Lexi immensely. Also, her renovation project for a Pluckyfluff Headquarters was funded. The grand opening should happen by the end of August or early September! Can't wait.

Also, I have been doing a lot of spinning lately and I have included some new photos. Wishing you all a wonderful summer and lots of creativity!
