Hello from Kansas City. The first two days of Ply Away have been so much fun! I've taught a two day class on spinning painted braids.
My students really dug in and tried everything I threw at them, and they came up with variations on color combinations that were new to me.
They spun braids from four different dyers. Experimenting with color manipulation on the first day, and thinking through amd sampling for a project the second day.
I also talked to them about grist, because I always talk about grist.
The marketplace isn't open yet, but the vendors are loading in as I write this. I did walk through, and saw many things that I want to buy.
I walk through the halls here at Ply Away smiling. I am with my people here and it feels great!
