Oh, dear, this weather is playing havoc with our class schedule, this term. Let's hope it improves so that we can get back on track.
Hi all, I wanted to say that you will need to bring your carders, drum or hand, coloured, clean fleece, etc. for Monday's class, but I think we might still need to keep and eye on the weather for the next few days. So lets review things on Monday morning, shall we?
I've been teaching spinning, weaving and dyeing for over 25 years and have always wanted a way for the Monday Class to keep in touch with each other. So I've created this blog to enable them to keep up to date with what we are doing from week to week or month to month, at the class, or if they miss a week or two. I hope it will be useful. Please let me know!
