Marilyn attended a 4-day workshop with Judith Mackenzie, beloved spinning teacher and master storyteller from Forks, Washington. Here are some details.
I have been spinning since 2004, yet felt I learned so much from this incredible week. There were about 20 people in the class, and it was wonderful to get to know them. We were comfortably housed and fed at the Alton Collins Retreat Center. We spun all day and into the evening. Judith adjusted every wheel, gave individual assistance whenever needed, and was constantly demonstrating how we could learn to control our spinning.
Judith’s love of the fiber arts was always evident. She set up an indigo dye bath and we were invited to dye fiber, cloth, yarn…everyone came away with something blue!
