- May 23, 2008I would be interested in the workshop. Carol is a wonderful teacher and even though the material would not be new to me I would still take her class - a 3 day workshop - what a luxury!----- Original Message -----From: KarinSent: Thursday, May 22, 2008 12:30 PMSubject: [nordicknitters] Possible Scandinavian Spinning Workshop Seattle
We are trying to see if there is enough interest to hold a three day
Scandinavian Spinning Workshop. Possible dates would be mid to late
Areas covered would be Scandinavian fleeces, prep and uses for, Bohus,
Z-plied, and Lovikka yarns and more.
Instructor would be:
Carol Huebscher Rhoades
Living in Madison, WI, Carol has a special interest in the wools-their
preparation and spinning-and the techniques for traditional handspun
and knitted garments, particularly those of Scandinavia and England.
She is the Technical Editor of and a frequent contributor to Spin-Off
magazine, and has translated Swedish, Norwegian and Danish knitting
books. Her teaching has taken her around the U.S., including to SOAR
and WI Sheep & Wool Festival, as well as to England, Canada, Norway,
Denmark and New Zealand.
Please e-mail me at loweosborn at yahoo.com if you are interested.
Thanks !! Karin
