Yay! May is a month of action for me. I will be travelling both north and south to share fiber goodness.
First, I will be driving to Duluth, Minnesota. That means I get to drive over the Mackinac Bridge and through the Upper Peninsula. The Duluth Art Institute is hosting my spinning workshops “Creating the Yarn You Want” and “Blending Colors at the Wheel” on Saturday, May 5 and Sunday, May 6.

Before these workshops, on Friday, May 4, I will be giving a presentation for the DuluthFiber Handcrafters Guild, “Sources of Inspiration: Show Me a Miracle”.
A couple weeks later, I go north again to teach some knitting workshops. I am so excited to be part of the Spring Fiber Fling, an annual fiber retreat sponsored by the Country Spinners and Bridge Shuttlers. This retreat is the weekend of May 19-20 and it’s located in Pickford, Michigan (north of The Bridge). I will be teaching “Knitting Ribs and Welts” on Saturday, May 19.
Then I drive down to Petoskey (a bit south of The Bridge) to teach at the Tip of the Mitt Fiber Fair. This annual festival is in its second year and is also the weekend of May 19-20. I am teaching “Matching Yarn to Project and Project to Yarn” on Sunday, May 20.
At the end of May, I travel south to Wooster, Ohio to take part in the Great Lakes Fiber Show. I was there last year for the first time and loved it. This year, I’m teaching “Variations on Long Draw” on Saturday, May 26. That afternoon I’ll be judging the skein competition. The following day, Sunday, May 27, I’m teaching “Spinning Luxury: Cashmere, Camel, and More”.

So, May is a month of packing, unpacking, driving, teaching, and doing laundry. And interacting with wonderful fiber folks. It will be a non-stop month, but a good one, I am sure!
