News: (updated 16 April 2015)

My schedule for 2015 is almost full, with just a few available weekends remaining. If you were thinking about hosting a workshop on your farm for your friends, your customers or your association, you can check those dates here.

Right now I am in the throes of preparing for the 2015 MAPACA Jubilee, the largest alpaca show on the east coast, just having been announced as a level 5! Most excitedly, for me at least, is that Otto and Joanne Strauch from the Strauch Fiber Equipment Company will be joining the Moonwood Farm team at the show to bring you all the information you need about carding and carding equipment. What a great opportunity for folks to not just take a free carding workshop, but to interact with the master toy makers themselves. Otto will be servicing my five beloved Petite drum carders that have patiently endured the overstuffing and hard cranking of enthusiastic beginners, and he'll do this in full public view for entertainment and more importantly, education.

In between spinning, dyeing and packaging I am taking small breaks to enjoy my garden as it wakes up. This year I'm trying a few rows of straw bales for the first time.

My very cool homeschooled son Jesse, who provided batts for the SAFF booth a few years ago under the name Fiber Elf, and last year raised enough funds through his Little Big Dream project, will more than likely continue creating spinning fibers here and there, keep an eye out in the booth to see if you can snatch up some of his creations.

In the upcoming months I'll be heading to PA, KY, TN, MS, VA, GA and TX to teach my How To Train Your Fiber and How To Train Your Fiber II workshops, initiate some beginning spinners, step some more experienced ones up to core and tail spinning, visit the Unicorn power scour folks, and meet lots of excited alpaca folks who are dipping their toes into the world of fiber art.

Spring and Summer are going to smell like hot water, vinegar and dye, blended with a lot of laughter and happy faces . Hope to see you soon somewhere along this creative road!
