BEGINNING SPINNING

You can learn to spin your own yarn!  Yes, indeed!  Pam and Dale will teach you.  
Learn fiber basics, how to drop spin, how to ply yarns, and how to spin on a wheel, all in the same class.  We teach you why fibers do what they do. Then we teach you how to drop spin on a spindle.  You will get to play with all of the spinning wheels in the shop and finally you will actually spin and ply your own yarn from roving.
This is a 3-1/2 hour class that you schedule when YOU want to take it.  You will leave the shop with a skein of your own handspun 2-plyed  yarn, and a knowledge of fibers.  Plus a student drop spindle to keep.
