One Planet Yarn and Fiber March 11th Offers and News

Is it March already?  First, I want to announce the winners for the February Blog Contest.  Thank you all for participating.  Names were chosen at random by the random number generator.



Joan Seely

Please send me an email with your shipping information.

The Master Spinners course that I was hoping to take was canceled for right now.  US customs would not allow the Canadian instructor in to the country because they couldn't figure out why anyone would pay monwy to learn to spin.  It is a big disappointment, but life moves on.

In April I will be taking a weaving class, learning to weave on a four harness loom.  I received a grant for the Desert Weavers and Spinners Guild to study weaving and will make a formal presentation to the guild about my work next year.  Yes!

The SALE page is still loaded.  The move is less than 4-6 weeks away!  Don't forget to check it out.
