I'm happy to offer you my upcoming Spring Workshops, in The Bellwether Studio in Port Ludlow and at Bazaar Girls Yarn Shop in Port Townsend. I'd like to extend a warm welcome to all the new subscribers from Madrona!
Pi, my Shetland lamb in 2002, says "hi" on his day, 3/14. We are on the verge of Spring here with frogs, crickets, and birds all singing the sun to bed and awake each day now. There are fun workshops coming up ... Come learn something new in Port Ludlow and enjoy the sunny full-of-potential garden.
If you've any questions, let me know with a reply to the newsletter. I'm always happy to chat!
Sock yarns inspire my spinning -- finding the perfect fiber, the best yarn structure, even the best sock itself. Come spin along with me as we journey through the land of sock yarn spinning!

Shetland sheep have a rich history and tradition, and a unique fleece. We spin fleece, roving, and combed top from this noble animal while we discuss the palette of natural colors they provide and the historical use for Shetland ring shawls. Local Shetland fiber and fleece will be available to purchase.

Want to learn a new skill?
Pick a month and a location. Each month, learn to spin, knit, crochet, nalbind, spindle, or Tunisian crochet at my studio in Port Ludlow or at Bazaar Girls in Port Townsend. Schedule available on www.thebellwether.com.
Private Workshops also available, in March we had a great back-to-front warping workshop! What do you want to learn? Email and we can get it scheduled.
Online workshops always available! My first pre-recorded workshop, Weave Now on the Rigid Heddle, is available 24/7 on http://www.weavolution.com (under Classes). Let me know what other pre-recorded workshops you would like to see. I'm also happy to teach live via Skype.
Spring is springing! I've warped my loom and am looking forward to a whole host of summer wool shows!
