Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance says
Spinning is a creative act. In our craft, we push the boundaries of our creativity within the framework of technical know-how. Whether we are spinning yarns that are traditional or innovative, turning an idea into a reality depends on our ability to match a set of learned skills with an aesthetic vision. Kate will share with you how she uses a spinner's creativity notebook to capture fleeting color combinations and pattern ideas, while keeping no-fuss, yet accurate samples while creating a textile. You will leave with a spinner's notebook, several of your own color-texture studies, and a new way to capture your creativity.

Kate Larson loves using fiber arts as a bridge between her passions for art and agriculture. Her fiber journey has led her to a degree in soil chemistry, travels through northern Europe in search of textile traditions, and back to the farm where her family has lived for six generations. She keeps an ever-growing flock of Border Leicester sheep and teaches handspinning and knitting regularly in central Indiana and around the country. Kate is the author of The Practical Spinner's Guide: Wool (Interweave, 2015), and her articles and designs have appeared in Spin-Off Magazine, Jane Austen Knits, Enchanted Knits, Knitting Sweaters from Around the World, and more. You can follow her woolly adventures at
