Kate spends (too) much of her time with her flock of Border Leicesters. As you can see, they don’t mind the extra attention. See the 2014 lambs here.

  1. I love catching up with you here. It makes my heart smile to know you’re doing what you love back where we grew up…so many fond memories.

  2. Dear Kate – thanks again for a wonderful class at Arrowmont last weekend. I am inspired and encouraged. Can’t seem to find you or Julie on FB due to the vast number of people with your same names, but I’ll keep trying.

    • I just found you on Facebook and sent a friend request. It was great to meet you! I really enjoyed our weekend at Arrowmont. Hope to see you again sometime!

  3. Hi Kate, I just wanted to say thank you for judging the skein competition at the Great Lakes Fiber Show again. I always learn so much from your judging! Thanks, too, for your comments on my flax skein. It was my 1st time spinning flax and I will definitely practice for next year! Btw, do you have a page on FB? Take care, Kim

    • Hi Kim, I’m glad you found my website. I hope you enter the skein competition again next year–you did a great job! And I’m also happy to hear that you enjoyed the open judging. There is a link to my Facebook page on the Contact page above. If you can’t find it, just send me an email. Cheers!
