Studio 49's 13th Annual Fiber Retreat

October 18 - 20

a small and delightful spinning retreat close to Yosemite 


If you're ever in Sonora on the second Tuesday of each month, drop by the Tuolumne County Library, where a group of spinners who call themselves Studio 49 meets informally to spin, knit, talk and laugh. I try to be there every month. There's usually always some fiber to buy. Visitors are always welcome, even if you don't yet spin. For more information, contact Mother Lode Weavers and Spinners Guild at

Our studio is our home, so there's no brick and mortar shop. But you can always reach us. And since we're almost always working and playing with dyes and fibers and metals and stones, please contact us anytime to find out what's new.

We want to hear from you! We can tell you what's available, answer your questions, and maybe sell you something you just can't live without.

And on Ravelry too! We really welcome seeing what you do with our fibers. Send pictures, lots of pictures, to our Ravelry group dreamy goat design fiber and show the world what magic you've spun!

The original Dreamy Goat Design trio: Mary, Roger and Rumi, our beloved Aussie with a summer haircut.

A focused buyer at the California Wool and Fiber Festival in Boonville, Mendocino County. Fiber shows are great places to find local breeders, indie dyers ("ahem") and specialty yarns.

Occasionally I still teach a workshop--anywhere from half day to two days in length. Let me know if you might be interested.

Unpacking after a trunk show. We really enjoy visiting guilds to show off our fibers that you won't find anywhere else. We get the pleasure of meeting you, maybe making a few sales, and then heading off to explore someplace new. It's a win-win for everyone...and isn't that the whole point of it all?
