Due to widespread areal flooding (I’m using a NOAA word–who says “areal”?), or the storms in general, or what-have-you (I’m just guessing), we have no incoming or outgoing long distance service (though the internet, which is DSL, is mysteriously still alive…). So unless you’re already in Harveyville on another land line, you won’t be able to call.
If you’re coming to Fiber School & need help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be checkin my email at least hourly. Hopefully, the phone issues will be resolved today.
Last weekend, we hosted a delightful group for the Fiber Treasures Retreat, an intensive specialty spinning retreat taught by Teri Plemel (FiberTerian) and Christine Long Derks (TreasureGoddess). Lovely spinners and stunning yarn, and windy but fair Kansas weather. Photos from Teri & Christine.
At the end of the workshop, students wove tiny masterpieces with their beautiful creations, a brilliant idea to showcase small amounts of handspun. I may have to steal this idea for Yarn School. (Photos courtesy of @fiberterian. If you attended the retreat, please send your photos to add!)
We’ve got a male student enrolled in a standard room (shared double), so if you’re a man interested in Yarn School, but you always miss the private rooms before they sell out, you’re in luck! Register in a standard and we’ll room you with the other fella.
The Harveyville Project is hosting a new specialized spinning retreat this spring! Organized and taught the delightful duo of Christine Long Derks (TreasureGoddess) & Teri Plemel (FiberTerian), the workshop focuses on creating and working with textured art yarns.
The workshop runs Friday evening thru Sunday afternoon–a relaxing, fun, and fiber-rich weekend getaway!
Details and registration on the Fiber Treasures Retreat page.
There are still spots open for fall Yarn School & Felt School. Private rooms are sold out for Yarn School-only (but still available if you’re enrolling in both workshops), but standard doubles and group room spots are still open. Register now!
AND we still need helpers for the Fall session. Details here!
Can’t seem to get more than a few days without a downpour. I’m sure the farmers are delighted, but we’re struggling to keep the basement dry and celebrating whenever the skies clear.
1 new group room opening. Just realized I neglected to relist it!
If you’re cash poor but time rich and you want to come to Yarn School this spring, we still have an opening for the Before/After helper. This helper arrives a few days early and leaves a day late for their helping duties, but during Yarn School they’re just like any other student. And you save $200! Yippee!
I swear (hic) I haven’t been getting into the homebrew (hic) whilst scheduling, but…
We’ve had to delay Beer School until fall. It will held between mid October and early November, dates TBA soon.
Deposits have been refunded and we’ll send out a notice to the mailing list when we have the new details. Thanks for your patience as we work out the bugs on our new workshop rollout!
