Two weeks ago, Amy Clarke Moore, editor of Spin-Off magazine, announced that this year’s SOAR (Spin-Off Autumn Retreat) will be the last SOAR.
So, in my mind I’ve been boogie-ing to the Donna Summer 1978 disco classic, “Last Dance”
Last dance, last chance for love
Yes, it's my last chance
For romance tonight
. . .
So let's dance, the last dance
Let's dance, the last dance
Let's dance, this last dance tonight
Last year I was a first-time mentor at SOAR. And they invited me back for this year. I’m quite thrilled!
For the three-day workshop, I’m teaching Spinning With Millspun Yarns. I’ve spent a good amount of the last few months playing with re-spinning yarns and combining re-spun yarns with fiber. This exploration has really struck a creative nerve which has got me quite psyched.
Here’s a picture of some of my yarn samples for this workshop:
And here is a picture of some scarves that I knitted from energized re-spun yarns.
There are still spots available in this workshop. Care to join me?
I’m also teaching two half-day workshops: Mechanics of Your Wheel and Spinning With Silk Hankies.
One very nice thing about SOAR this year is that it is close: it’s being held at Pheasant Run Resort in
St. Charles, Illinois,
close to .
It’s about a 6-hour drive from my house. Chicago
Dates for SOAR workshops are October 21-26, 2013. In addition to the workshops, there is a fabulous hall of vendors, a fashion show, and ample time to commune with fiber and fiber folks.
Are you interested in a last chance for this fiber love? Then join us!
