Instructor Information: Jill has taught spinning from Maine to California (but not everywhere in between – yet). She has taught at Fiber Festivals, John C. Campbell Folk School and Fibre Week in Olds, Alberta Canada. She is a regular teacher in such venues as the Arizona Federation of Weavers & Spinners Conferences, Southwest Regional Spinner Retreat and shops and guilds throughout Arizona. Jill loves lace knitting, cotton spinning and designing knits and yarns. Her love of these arts has created a passion to learn and perfect her techniques. Jill is known for her fine and beautiful yarns as well as her knowledgeable style of teaching.

Workshop Description: Designer yarns can be anything from a beautifully plied yarn to novelty to art.  Learn the techniques and then there will be time to play and create. We will also discuss how and when to use these yarns in knitting, crochet and weaving. Bring any fiber and items you may wish to include in your yarns. Fiber and other yarns will be provided.

Materials and Supplies: Spinning wheel in good working condition; Lazy Kate, Niddy Noddy, and additional spinning tools as desired.  Optional: fiber, yarns, beads, any other inclusions such as feathers, silk flowers, etc.
