February has an exciting events:  I am giving a discussion followed by a workshop on Support Spindles of the World at North Olympic Shuttle and Spindle Guild in Sequim, Washington. Contact me if you are interested in attending. The discussion is free, the workshop is $25. Fiber and spindles provided for use in the workshop.

I have a request for the Viking Wire Knit Bracelet workshop. Let me know if you are interested, and we will get it scheduled in the near term.

I'm planning to have a Rigid Heddle weekend in April, for adventurous beginners.

If there's a topic you'd like to see, I teach privately or small groups by arrangement. I can also do workshops via Skype or come to you.

Let me know if having workshops on Google calendar or some other forum would be helpful -- I've been posting on Ravelry, Facebook, and via email, but haven't kept Google calendar up to date.

If you have any questions about the workshops, just let me know. I'm always happy to provide more details.

Now, if MailChimp's doing its thing, you'll see how to unsubscribe below. Otherwise, just hit reply and I'll make sure to remove you from the list if that's your request.

You can also forward this email to a friend, if you'd like to let them know about the upcoming workshops, too!

Thank you,
Amelia (the Busy Bee!)
