While spring has been slow to appear, the Fiber Studio is buzzing with activity. Join us for a special Mother's Day collaboration and enroll in Mother's Day: Sew a Picnic Tote. You can Make a Picnic-Perfect Cutting Board in the Woodshop and then try out your baking skills making Sweet Treats for Mom in the Kitchen. It's a trifecta of Mother's Day making - try one or two or all three. Bring your mom!

Knitters can conquer that fear of steeks (cutting your knitting) while creating a handy name tagin stranded colorwork. Begin your dyeing and hat-knitting journey in Dye a Skein, Knit a Hat.

New to sewing or need a refresher? Try Learn to Sew: Apron or Learn to Sew: Pillow Slip Cover (we also have an evening option). These classes will build your confidence and give you some valuable skills. You must have taken Orientation to Fiber Sewing Machines first.

Weavers - don't miss Spring Weaving Weekend May 19-21. You can also learn new finishing techniques for your weaving projects inFinish Flourishes Lab.

Diana Gipson returns to BARN for two classes: Create Your Own Fabric in May and Playing with Stencils and Paint in June.

Don't miss these and many more classes coming up in the Fiber Studio.
