As more courses are confirmed, many of you are wondering about additional information, and course materials.  Due to the volume of participants that we have joining us at Fibre Week, we will be contacting our participants to update you as to what's going to be happening on campus.  At that time, we'll also remind workshop participants of the supplies they need to bring, and will email a pdf version of the modules for our Master Spinner and Weaver program participants (no need to print it, there will still be a hard copy waiting for you in your class).  Be sure to look for the email!
