Event description

Description

Drop spindling is an inexpensive and fun gateway to spinning. Whether you've been frustrated by past attempts to learn, or are a complete newbie, this class will have you spinning your own yarn in no time. Learn the basics about different types of spindles, fleece preparations, drafting, plying, and finishing. Soon you'll be ready to spin your own knitting yarn. Check out my Buttonbox Waistcoat (Knitty, Spring 2013 for an example of a spindle-spun garment).

Everything you need will be provided in a kit. Includes a lovely drop spindle and lots fleece to get you spinning. Please pay instructor $30 for the kit at the time of the class.
