The JST Schedule is Here!
The moment you’ve all been waiting for! What everyone has been calling about! It’s here, the time is now!
Working on the 2012 schedule has been exciting. In addition to all our weaving workshops we are thrilled to have Cheryl Huseby Wiebe teaching two spinning workshops and Joan Carrigan teaching a basketry workshop for us this year.
Check out our full
WORKSHOP AND RETREAT SCHEDULE for 2012!
Jane’s Helpline is filling up with some very exciting and useful information. Our newest addition is Jane’s Canvas Chart. Jane has spent her life sampling and testing yarns on their own and in different combinations for her workshops and production lines. She knows everyone doesn’t have time to sample to this extent so she is sharing the knowledge gained from that testing with everyone.
We are so lucky that our customers are also our good friends and friends share. We wanted to show off what some of you have been up to.
This cashmere stole was woven by Salt Spring weaver, Barney Guthrie. Barney does beautiful work in silk, weaves tartan in fine merino and just blew us away with his stole below. The hand and drape were just amazing. Barney used 5 cones of our 2/28 cashmere to create this piece.
Some of these pieces are the result of a retreat here at JST. Below is Linda Knowles’ Double Weave scarf in Zephyr that she made after taking our Double Weave workshop in August.
Jeanette Newton used Zephyr for her dented stole in sage and teal after taking our Pushing the Boundaries of Awesome Weave aka Plain Weave workshop in May:
We have more projects to share with you in our next newsletter, but we’re keeping it short this time so you can concentrate on the retreats!
However, some light entertainment that you might find fun can be found below:
If you’re really serious about weaving, every detail counts.

We also wanted to share news about a new DVD called Blue Alchemy, Stories of Indigo produced by Mary Lance. It can be purchased through Maiwa in Vancouver.
I am off to Vancouver next week to teach my new workshop, the Delectable Sari for the Maiwa Symposium. I’ll be back with more stories for the next newsletter in a couple of weeks. Until then, happy weaving,
