Barry (Schacht) and I took the opportunity to dine with Jillian Moreno when she was in town filming her plying class for Craftsy. Between teaching trips, Jillian is busy working on her next book on spinning to knit for Storey, due out in 2016. You know Jillian particularly through Knitty and KnittySpin–both great sources for inspiration.

It’s always great to get together with fiber folk, especially when they are as passionate as Jillian. Check out her classes on her website for your next guild or shop class.
