Back from camp

Good morning/afternoon/evening to all,

I have arrived back at Majacraft after a fantastic weekend at Lexi's camp, exhausted but brimming with ideas. Where to start? Well, first off, it was AWESOME! For me the thing I enjoyed most about it was not necessarily the techniques that she taught - which were great of course - but more about looking at spinning in different ways, thinking about how to spin in different ways. Lexi was delightful and our time with her seems over far to quickly. We are definitely going to have to invite her back!

I also very much enjoyed the company of the camp members as well. We had a lot of fun and it was great to meet many that I have only known by name. Special mention of course must go to the theatre company that presented an adaptation of Cinderella. Unfortunately both the cameras are still in Wellington so this is going to be a 'words' post rather than a graphical feast, the photos will follow later this week.

It was also nice to be able to share the new wheel with the camp. We had an opportunity for free time to try it that several people took up. There is still tweaking and development going on as we work to making it as perfect as possible.

And finally, congratulations to Nicole who won a Majacraft spinning wheel with our spot prize. She is going to university this week so having a wheel to take with her during her studies is likely to be a pleasant surprise.

Bye for now.

Andy

  1. I’m breathless to hear more about camp, the new wheel & pics! I can’t wait to see photos of your weekend .. bring them on!!

  2. Yes, please, invite Lexi back again! Maybe, by then, I will have been able to save up enough to come to camp instead of missing it like this year!

  3. A big THANK-YOU to all the Majacraft Team who made the camp possible. It was a wonderful weekend! Lexi was great, Camp Mother had us very well organised, and everyone was in awe of the new wheel. Congratulations to all involved in it’s production.

  4. I cannot wait for the big reveal. I have saved my pennies, well euros and
    I have just put an order on hold for a Majacraft wheel here in France. I have been trying to spin art yarns on an old Haldane castle wheel – mad or what?????

    So please how long to wait…..any clues about the price???? Any clues whatsoever…beg, beg, grovel, grovel

  5. Thank you very much for the awesome Camp. I have learnt so much in the way of techniques and I am sure some will be used in the future. Well done to the Majacraft Team and Lexi for all you time and efforts in making this camp so successful.

  6. Andy, the Majacraft fans group on Rav is all abuzz about your new wheel. :-) Waiting for your new wheel has given us all something to live for (and save for!!).

    Hope it is just as fun and exciting for you!
