Yarn Overload! with Linda Dean


Time: Sunday, October 2nd 9a.m.-12p.m.


Location: Dixon May Fairgrounds in Dixon, CA


Workshop Description: So many yarns and fibers, so many different results! This class will introduce you to a wide array of fibers and yarns, as well as teach you the properties of each. Learn the qualities of alpaca, llama, mohair, silk, merino, Shetland, superwash wool, bamboo, angora, acrylic, and cotton, while also learning the different effects they create in your project. Learn how the attributes of yarn, such as the weight, twists per inch, and ply structure can affect how your stitches turn out. This class is designed to increase your knowledge in your materials so that you can improve the matching of your yarn to your project and get the results you desire.

Instructor Bio: Linda enjoys fiber crafts as relaxation and rejuvenation time. She believe that the work through of a piece is just as important as the finished product; if you don’t enjoy the journey the destination isn’t as wonderful as it could be (and it may never get finished!). Linda has been teaching various fiber crafts for over a decade, is a Craft Yarn Council Certified Instructor, and teaches regularly at her local yarn shop just east of Sacramento and at Jimmy Beans Wool in Reno. This is all balanced with restoring the home that Linda’s great-grandfather built with her husband and kids.
