Yarn School Schedule

I thought I’d post the schedule. I know it’s a ways away, but I’m so excited about it! I need to be careful not to get distracted. The anticipation has got me spinning again, whee!

    I am ridiculously giddy about this :-)

    I already have Friday off. Also, like last year, I’ll be available to fetch a late arrival from the airport if needed.

  • Nikol says:

    Me too. I’m freaking beside myself. This year, I’ll know what to expect, so I won’t get stuck running around when I could be taking classes! Whooo hoo! Sweet about the rides. If necessary, we plan to rent a van, I think, and make one big run each way, but I know there will be stragglers.

    Goodies bags are going to be SUPER SWEET this year, too.

    Hi there! Did you get to attend last year and recount the experience on blog? I’ve been spinning for a year and on the fence about attending. I’m not sure that I would learn anything new. Before spending $450 + plane fare, it would be good to hear from someone that experienced this course :)
