Judith has been teaching spinning and weaving for years. She is much in demand at fiber fairs to judge fleece, sheep and teach. Her textile experience is varied, from textile restoration for museums to sheep ranching in Montana. She has published several books including: The Intentional Spinner and Teach Yourself VISUALLY Handspinning. More recently she has several spinning instructional CDs/DVDs with Interweave including Spinning Luxury Fibers, Three Bags Full, Popular Wheel Mechanics, Gentle Art of Plying and A Spinner’s Toolbox. Judith currently live in Forks, WA in the rainforest made famous due to the Twilight vampire books. She feels at home here, since she was raised a bit north, on the Canadian west coastline. We will be picking classes soon and making registration available Sept 2015.

Long time knitter, spinner par excellence Gayle Andrus took a beginning rigid heddle weaving class this past year. Photographed here by Mary Werner is her very first hand woven project, a beautiful bag, using handspun fibers and embellished with beads.
Gayle was pleased to have had her bag displayed at a First Friday Art Show at Changepoint Church where she also demonstrated drop spindle spinning. Gayle’s husband made the display stand for the bag.
