About This Class

I am a self-taught spinner, and would like to teach you how to make your own yarn with the most basic equipment. The yarn can then be used for knit, crocheted or woven projects.

My class will teach you how to first make the spindle, then how to spin the fiber into yarn. You will then be taught how to ply from a center-pull ball.

Spinning your own yarn is a rewarding experience. As you become more skilled at it, you will find you can spin almost anywhere. I have sat in waiting rooms, at craft fairs and even spun in the car (as a passenger, of course). It attracts attention, and makes people take a second look.

Join me as I walk you through the steps. Feel free to ask questions and show off your projects.
