I’ve got one of her books and a DVD, but there’s nothing like meeting Judith MacKenzie face to face. I had the wonderful good fortune to be invited to the home of a new friend last weekend, who just happens to be friends with Judith. While she was visiting this woman, they decided to host a workshop on Wheel Mechanics and Spinning the Diameter of Yarn You Want. It was that great combination of learning and good fun.
I have found over the years, that the best instructors are those who combine technical knowledge with good storytelling abilities. Jacey Boggs has that quality and Judith has it in spades. This woman has had a full and interesting life! And she shares her tales with gusto.
So you walk away from her workshops needing time to process all her wonderful tips about the science and art of spinning while also smiling about her stories, adventures and passion for history and experience.
It was an amazing day and I will treasure it.
