Fibre Prep at Wabi-Sabi

To say this fall is busy would be an understatement, and I looked on my upcoming classes (scheduled this summer, when my datebook had a lot more blank lines in it) with some apprehension. Working full time and taking two course, along with a couple of evenings of volunteer work, does not a relaxing schedule make.

Once I actually got to the classes, though, I was glad to be back teaching them. I love seeing people’s faces when they “get” it and they go from unsure to enthusiastic. The biggest compliment, I think, is having students come back for more of my classes. Out of six students for Fibre Prep this Saturday, four had taken one or both of my other classes. It’s great to see familiar faces as well as find out how their skills have grown. The class was a good group this week–everyone very excited to learn about working with raw wool, and with a great sense of humour. One student even bought handcards from the shop in the middle of class! Success.



  1. I’ll say! And my family was all totally thrilled to know what the blue stuff was on the raw fleece I brought home…thanks for another great class!

    • Ha! First fleece I’ve bought that has a mark on it–made for a more amusing explanation, that’s fer sure.

  2. It was great to see you again, too. Another great class! Went straight out and bought a dog comb, put in a plug with the family for proper combs for Christmas, and am preparing to do battle with that old fleece of mine… I’ll keep it posted on my blog.

    Thanks again! 🙂
