I thought these two pages might be of interest to spinners and especially
beginning spinner's.

	This page talks about spinning holidays.

	Has some good basic articles on washing fleece, etc.

I meant to ask what areas are the weavers', embroiderers' and other textile
people curious about.  Obviously (myself included) the spinners and some
knitter's are going full tilt.  I have some web pages for other fibers and
we can find more info for people.

Also I will be going out this weekend to help a friend clean fleeces.  Some
of them are for sale... Mostly they are shetland something crosses...... I
bought two and they are really nice colors and feel soft.  I also will be
cleaning alpaca (I think).  And will let you know.  Skirting fleeces is
nasty work and very tedious.  Michelle said when she was cleaning one she
found a dead mouse.  (grin)
