Golden Gate Fiber Institute

Morgaine Wilder of Carolina Homespun and spinning guru Judith MacKenzie McCuin are sponsoring their first summer intensive this coming July 28-August 3, 2008 . What I like about this conference is its small classes, the opportunity to spend time with great teachers to really delve into something you’ve wanted to learn. Over five days, students will spend time with just two teachers.

Teachers include: Nancy Bush, Sara Lamb, Judith MacKenzie McCuin, among others.

Held at the Point Bonita YMCA Camp and Conference Center, the $820 tuition includes classes, meals and lodging.
