Aging Antidote: Yarn School!

Last night at the North Denver Knitting Guild, Marybeth regaled us with tales of Yarn School:  Three-plus days of classes in dyeing, fiber prep and spinning that take place in an early 20th-century schoolhouse. All meals and fiber included. And you should have seen Marybeth's dye jobs and nifty art yarns.

The event takes place in Harveyville, KS, at The Harveyville Project, a creator retreat and artist refuge founded by two urban refugees interested in escaping city noise and reclaiming a bit of Americana. (One of the urban escapee is Nikol Lohr, author of Naughty Needles.)

Anyway, we were weak in the knees at the thought of it and excited beyond belief. Isn't enthusiasm a wonderful tonic?

I looked at the yarn school offerings - they are quite something. As is the setting. You do come up with fun stuff!!
