SUNDAY SEPT 15TH
Amy King of Spunky Eclectic
ARE YOU INTERESTED IN LEARNING TO SPIN? LET US KNOW AND WE CAN HAVE TEACH A BEGINNERS CLASS TOO!
SPIN SPINDLE SPIN
You can use a spindle. You're comfortable with it but you know you can be better. You see people walking around with a spindle or here and there at a festival. They're so comfortable with their spindle and doing things with it that you know you'd like to do but …. how?
This is the class with those answers. Spin around the corner, long draw, from the fold, ply as you go and more. As much as you can handle we'll work on getting you more proficient with your spindle.
STUDENT: You must have a working knowledge of how the spindle works. Know how to spin and ply on the spindle but
you only need the basics. Please bring 2-3 spindles of differing weights to class. You'll need a light one for singles, mid weight for both, and a heavier one for plying.
SPIN IT FAT
Spinning thicker yarns is just about more fiber in your drafting triangle. Right? If it were that simple there would be no need for a class on bulky spinning. Many spinners spend all this time working at getting thinner and thinner yarns then aren't able to get back to spinning the thicker yarns that we did in our newbie beginning. In this class I assist you in working through the trials and wheel mechanics to help you make a thicker yarn.
STUDENT - Please bring a wheel in good working order with 3 or more bobbins. It's also helpful to have a Niddy Noddy and a Lazy Kate.
You must be capable of making yarn and have a good working knowledge of the wheel and be comfortable with basic spinning instructions.
