We are excited to announce March's spin-in. We are pairing with Traveling Vineyard to offer our first Sip & Spin. Enjoy sampling 5 wines while we study heritage sheep breeds.
For the month of March, we will be studying Navajo-Churro. I love this breed! If you want a strong yarn for tapestry weaving or bags, this is the breed for you. We will discuss how to spin this magnificent fiber and even get a little hands on with it. Please RSVP to make sure we have fiber available for you. This is a 21+ event and limited to only 10 spinners. Bring you spinning wheels, notebook and any additional fiber you would like to spin.

Toia has an intense interest in Indigenous Weave Structures. She received the title Master Ashante Kente Weaver from Adamwomase, Ghana, West Africa in 2009. At that time, she was the only female, American weaver to achieve the title. She learned to weave Taanko from a Maori tribe of New Zealand. It is her goal to help preserve the indigenous structures through video and woven cloth.
