It was FANTASTIC! (She was one of the presenters at the Weaving History Conference in Clayton, NY).

And when she's not working on significant projects like that, she's doing this (and wearing her Sprang, too!)

Agree, Sally!  Carol's doing great outreach on sprang!

There's more in this issue: a how-to article by Carol, a short article on some spinning for sprang that Stephenie Gaustad did, and a bit by Carol about adding twist to commercial yarns for use in sprang.

I've taken workshops by Carol and Stephenie; both great teachers.
