Greetings to all who have expressed interest in Judith MacKenzie McCuin's San Francisco classes in March 2009.
Here is the line up
4 day weaving workshop at Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands
March 20-24, 2009
This is the third weaving workshop that Judith has taught in the San Francisco area. As many of you know - in addition to her expertise in spinning, Judith is a master weaver.  Last year we began this series with warping our looms. The skill level in the class ranged from beginner (me) to very experienced weavers. We all walked away with homework in the form of sample gamps to weave and bring back this year.  This year the focus will be drafting. This class is part of an ongoing weaving series that meets annually with Judith to build our weaving skills. New students are welcome to join in the fun. This is a class for multi harness weaving so you must have access to at least a 4 harness table loom for the class.
This year's Class will be held at the Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The cost for class includes class, lodging and food and there will be a small additional materials fee.
Cost $560 plus materials. Covers class, class space, food and lodging.$100 deposit at time of sign up

Dates and times: We can arrive anytime after 3pm Friday afternoon. Friday evening we will get our looms set up and have dinner. Class will begin on Saturday morning after breakfast. Our last meal on campus will be Tuesday lunch and class will end by 5pm on Tuesday.

3 Day Spinning Retreat at Point Bonita Lighthouse in the Marin Headlands
March 13 - 16, 2009
Singles, Plys and Cables 
The location for the retreat is lovely - We will meet at the YMCA camp at Point Bonita Lighthouse. The stay at Point Bonita includes our use of the class space, dorm style rooms and (from everything I hear ) fabulous food. The camp is an old Army facility when I went to see the camp the group in residence at the time was a large group of quilters from all over the country. Like us they varied in age and physical ability.  I met several of the women and all said it was quite comfortable and this was their 29th year of quilting at Point Bonita!   While we spin and knit we will enjoy the the services of a terrific chef who is a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. The staff is committed to handling any dietary requests - including but not limited to vegetarian and vegan diets.  
Cost $445 plus materials  Covers class, class space, food and lodging.   $100 deposit at the time of sign up.

Dates and Times: We can arrive any time after 3pm on Friday afternoon. Our first meal will be dinner on Friday. It is a time of gathering and setting up. Class will begin after breakfast on Saturday morning. Our last meal on campus is Monday lunch and class will end by 5pm Monday.
