was fantastic! When I first signed up, I couldn’t imagine how we would fill 8 hours a day for 3 days with learning, but we did and I think we have only scratched the surface. We spun with so many different fibers and different fiber preparations – buffalo, yak, camel, horse (!), silk, quivot ….. and that is just what I can remember as I am typing this – my notes from the weekend are not handy. Anyway, here are some pictures …….

I think my head is still spinning. I haven’t unpacked my wheel from the travel bag, so I don’t have any sample pictures to show you ….. I could spend the entire week blogging about the past three days and if nothing exciting happens, I think I will!
OMG, that was so exciting!! Loved the pics. Sounds like you had a lost weekend.
damn…shoulda, woulda, coulda…
Sounds like a fabulous and informative week of spin blogging ahead for us! ; )
Can’t wait to read the rest of your posts about this!
Oooooh! A spinning workshop – that lasts three days! Sounds like so much fun!! :-)
Sounds like fun.
Now that I’ve spun my first yarn with my drop spindle, I find everything you’ve written about and what you will be writing about so exciting. Oh the geeks are loose!!
I dunno ’bout that surprise-reminds me of “silence of the lambs” …
