Dear Olympia Area Fiber Arts Community —
I hope you’ll help me in spreading the word about a beginning drop spinning class that I am teaching at the Arbutus Folk School in downtown Olympia, the first four Tuesdays in October. While I hope that students walk away feeling confident about how to spin a continuous thread and ply it into yarn they’ll use, my even greater hope is that they will walk away with a sense of the great fiber community we have in the Olympia area.
The class will feature guests from Jorstad Creek (Madison) and the Weaver’s Guild (Sherri Hruby) to give participants a taste of the many resources we have near us. This will be the first time I offer this class, but I hope it won’t be the last. In future iterations of this class, I would love to introduce students to each of you. My goal is to help support and continue to cultivate our craft community. I believe this connection is especially important for students who are new to fiber arts, younger people, and people who may work full time, so find it difficult to attend guild meetings or knit-ins during the day.
Finally, please let me know how I can support your work. If you’d like me to provide space for you to talk about your offerings in the class, great. If I can help spread the word to my students about classes you have, specials you’re running, or events coming up, let me know. As they say, we’re all in this together!
