Friday, we will have a full day class where we will complete a special Rhinebeck Breed Study. We will spin several yarns from 4 different sheep breeds We will take those yarns all the way to fabric made by weaving, knitting or crochet. All materials for the class will be provided.
Saturday morning, we will spend a short time chatting about things to avoid and specific things to look for when buying a fleece for a project. After that we will meet at the festival and head to the Fleece Barn where I will help you find the perfect fleece (or two or more!) You are on your own for lunch at the festival.
Saturday night, after a delicious dinner, we will spend some time together working on our fiber projects and I will be there with my handy tool kit ready to help you troubleshoot or tune up your spinning wheel. Feel free to bring your favorite wine or other refreshment.
Sunday morning, there will be another class and again, all materials will be provided. In the afternoon you are free to head back to the festival. Get ready for another enjoyable meal back at the house and then Sunday night we will have a fun time doing a little “Show and Tell” with our purchases from the festival!
