I have a Lendrum wheel and I have "played" at learning to spin for about a year, but never really taken the time to master any technique or figure out what to do with the yarn after it is on the bobbin.
This weekend I am going to the Florida Tropical Weavers Guild Annual Conference. http://www.ftwg.org/conference.htm
I am going to spend THREE days with Joan Ruane http://www.cottonspinning.com/ learn everything there is to know about my wheel and how to use it!
I am so excited. The retreat center "is on the shores of Lake Yale. Relax under the beautiful oaks as we leave the cares of the world behind for 4 days of fiber fun and fellowship. Located near Eustis, Florida, an hour north of Orlando, your hotel room is right here along with a cafeteria where all meals are provided. We offer a full schedule of activities including your choice of a 3 day workshop with an outstanding instructor, a juried fiber exhibit, fashion show, guild exhibits, commercial vendors and more."
DID YOU SEE THAT ..... VENDORS = SHOPPING !!!
I can't wait! I have promised myself I will take pictures and write about my adventure!
Oddly enough, I am also looking forward to the fact that I will not know anyone who is there.... nothing to distract me from learning everything I can about spinning. But, I do plan on making some new friends
Any of you in Central Florida planning to go ??
