Sara Lamb is a longtime hand spinner, weaver and dyer.

The class will be held with a minimum of 12 to a maximum of 16 students. The cost of the workshop will be $50 to $60 based on the number of participants. There will be a materials fee of $35 per person payable to Sara Lamb on the day of the workshop. There will be a sign-up sheet at our next guild meeting on April 3rd. Registration will be confirmed upon receiving a deposit of $35. The workshop will be open to non-guild members after April 4th if the maximum of 16 is not met from our guild members. Registration will close by April 14 in order to prepare workshop packets.
