Learn to turn roving into usable yarn using a drop spindle! $25. Fee includes a roving, please bring a spindle.

Registration required, as class size is limited due to the hands on nature of spinning. "Attending" this event does not register you for the class. Please register in person or by calling the shop.

It's often recommended that one learns to spin on a spindle before trying it on a wheel because spindles require a bit less coordination, but that doesn't necessarily make it the easier or "lesser" method!

You'll learn what to do with the fiber and your hands, and why the physical act of spinning the roving turns it into yarn before you try and add the motion of your feet too.

This class will be taught by Lissa N. No prior experience required. Class will also cover some basic terminology, history, and touch on various spinning methods.
