We can all agree that yarn is pretty much the greatest. We fill our homes and wardrobes and hands with the stuff. Come enjoy an informational talk about what makes the yarn we use so wonderful. We'll discuss fiber and the ways it can be spun. We'll also talk about how different fibers behave when knitted and why there's room in our hearts for them all.
