That's cool!  I think for spinners that would be something useful to learn
about.  And the Oklahoma site is totally awesome about sheep breeds.  I
know next time I see you I have questions about wool grading....

I have been asked, by the way, if embroiderers can be on this list.  My
thought is that sure, because if we get a lot of conversation on one
particular topic or we get one type of interest built off - we can always
splinter off and start another list.  So we also are currently putting
embroiderers on the list.

Fiber arts are very social.
