From Our Members

What I most enjoy about teaching is sharing my weaving knowledge and experiences with students and
seeing how excited they are to learn to weave. I get the most satisfaction from helping them work through their problems and build their confidence.

-Pat Capogrossi

I am a textile teacher and artist, not a scientist or Rumplestiltskin.  But I love to spin!  Yarn structures are really just recipes. You can substitute ingredients once you understand why that ingredient is necessary for the finished yarn. So really, spinning is both science and controlled magic and WGGB helps spread that knowledge and skill.
-Patsy Sue Zawistoski
