During my recent visit to the Black Sheep Gathering, I wandered into the booth of the Eugene Textile Center. I was ecstatic to find out that they offer workshops in hand spinning, especially since I had just purchased a drop spindle and have big dreams of creating my own yarn one day.
They also offer workshops in carding, feltmaking, needlework, weaving, dyeing, knitting, shibori, and surface design. I only wish I had enough time to take one of their beginner workshops before I return to Kuwait. Now that I know about the them, I will be able to plan on a course next summer. Maybe that will encourage me to make good progress with the drop spindle. In the meanwhile, I am busy collecting links to spinning tutorials so I will be ready to give it a try when I get home.
It also says on their card, that they can arrange birthday parties for children and adults. What a fresh and fun idea for a party!
