Dear Spinning Daily readers,

As summer winds down and fall draws closer, it's time to start thinking of going back to school. While the thought of summer vacation ending was utterly dreadful as a child, the prospect of learning something new is rather exciting as an adult–especially for fiber artists! No matter your skill level, there's always something new to be learned–which is the goal of Sauder Village's Fiber Arts Fest this fall. A celebration of all things yarn-related, Sauder Village in Northwest Ohio will be hosting several spinning, weaving, and knitting workshops September 24 and 25, followed by a Fiber Arts Show September 26 and 27.

Maybe you've always wanted to improve your yarn dyeing technique, or perhaps you'd like to expand your knowledge of wooly breeds. Whatever the case may be, learning is made fun at this fall festival-meets-yarn workshop event. Check out the details below, then visit our friends' website at www.saudervillage.org to register. We hope to see you there!

Warm Regards,

Gina Kuzmick
