Fiber Talks at the

Mississippi Craft Center

Fiber Talks happen most months prior to class.  Scheduled to start at 6:30 pm, the talks are held in the Center's library.  They cover a specific topic of interest to the weaving and spinning classes, but anyone can join in ($20 per session if not already enrolled in the weaving or spinning class).

Weaving, and spinning classes are currently offered on Tuesday evenings, 7-9 PM for 10 weeks at the MS Craft Center, 950 Rice Road, Ridgeland, MS. All needed equipment is available to currently enrolled students. Extensive handouts are provided for all classes. Supplies for beginners are also provided.

Marcy writes in order to teach and she teaches in order to write. 

Classes, seminars and talks are all improved by instruction manuals, monographs and other kinds of handouts.  In turn, students have been an inexhaustible source of novel and challenging questions, which in turn have led to new monographs, "Right from the Start" articles and revisions of existing works.

“Writing allows me to focus on a topic and adds clarity to my thinking.  By finding different ways to organize the material, I find better methods to present it to the reader as well as to teach my students.”
