Anne sits down with Theresa Drouin-Guerette, a.k.a Terri Spins. Terri uses her spinning skills as a living history interpreter, teaches spinning across the United States, and writes for Ply, Spin-off, and The Wheel. Listen in as they talk about Terri’s journey, breed-specific fiber, and more!
Since recording, the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival has announced that Terri will be their featured mentor at their event in Tunbridge, Vermont, on October 3 – 4, 2020. She will also be teaching three classes at the Interweave Yarn Fest in Loveland, Colorado, from April 29 – May 3, 2020.
