Mark your Calendars- Oct 23-25, 2009, SAFF

I am beyond thrilled to announce that I'll be teaching workshops at this year's SAFF (Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair), October 23-25 in Asheville, NC! I have never been to SAFF (or, indeed, to North Carolina), so I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful fiber gathering.

The class schedule hasn't been set firmly yet, but tentatively, I'll be teaching an all-day Fair Isle class, a no-wrap short-row heel class, and at least one yarn dyeing-workshop. I believe that registration opens around April 1, so we'll know by then, exactly which classes I'll head, and when. I hope to squeeze in a class or two myself, and some sightseeing.

I am so excited- not just for the trip to a gorgeous area that I have never visited, but for three full days surrounded by fiber folk. Do you think they'll let me stuff a raw fleece in my carry on?

Here's the website: . It will be updated regularly.

I hope to see some of you there!

This is very exciting news! I will be at SAFF for at least Sheep-to-Shawl. Maybe more and my guild usually does "Drop in and Weave."

Thanks everyone! I am extremely excited about this trip and opportunity to meet so many fiber people (and to spend some bucks in the marketplace).

Leigh- please keep in touch. I'd love to meet you at SAFF
