spinnersJust spent the most amazing spinning weekend attending the Jacey Boggs Insubordiknit Art Yarn workshop on Anna Maria Island. A very pregnant Jacey Boggs challenged us by providing introduction to the technical aspects of Art Yarn. The fast paced two day workshop provided exposure to no fewer than a dozen techniques to create sturdy, outrageous yarn. The spinners included a novice with less than two days spinning experience, an eight year old and well seasoned fiber enthusiasts. Jacey’s warm, friendly teaching style engages the seasoned spinner and novice alike making the workshop just plain fun.

I may have been the only one at the workshop that didn’t know Jacey offers a video CD on her web site CLICK HERE and who hadn’t already purchased the CD and attempted the techniques before attending the workshop. While the video/CD is excellent, (of course I had to purchase and have already sneaked a peek), I would encourage the one-on-one experience of the workshop. A simple reminder to slow my treadling made all the difference when I was struggling with cacoons.
