  1. Just spent a weekend with Kate. I’m still processing everything I learned for a day and a half. Spinning sound singles was superb, Spinning hand painted fiber was super fun and informative. Shifting shades: Spinning Gradient Yarns was challenging and, again, fun. I’m documenting my experiments using Kate’s format. Highly recommend Kate as a well organized and competent instructor.
