Fall is in the Airby Laurie Weinsoft on 08/23/17
I am excited to see OFFF is less than a month away. After great consideration and hours of tears I have decided to make OFFF my last fiber show for the year. It is also my last time I am going to teach at any local fiber show. As many of my former students and friends know, I have been fighting rather hard at times, dealing with Parkinson's and Arthritis. The last couple of years I have seriously considered cancelling my appearance contracts. It is not always easy to put on a happy face when my body just wants to sit and nap. Like many teachers, I think what I teach is so important to the student becoming a great spinner that I am having a hard time facing reality. The week after Black Sheep, I fell and broke my ankle. For the last seven weeks I have had to deal with a surgery, a wheel chair and rehab.
