In times when spinning was a necessary skill, spinners learned at a very young age at our mothers' and grandmothers' knees. That is still how spinning is taught to the next generation in some lands. Most of us were first exposed to spinning in our adult years. We may have seen someone spinning at a fiber festival or historical reenactment. If we want to keep our craft alive, we need to be visible when we're spinning. Wehther you have spun in public before or not, it can be a bit overwhelming. In this workshop, we will share our experiences spinning (or knitting) in public. We'll explore the variety of opportunities available to us fro spreading our joy in the fiber arts. And we'll cover some of the more common questions that people ask and how to best answer them.

Fee: $5
Fee covers a handout that will be provided electronically. And lots of laughs!

Students should bring note taking supplies, a sense of humor and adventure!
