Margaret is here to answer the call of all you fledgling spinners out there. In this two part series, you will learn the mechanics of wheel spinning on our various rental wheels. Try out a few and select one that feels best.

We will be meeting in two sessions:
- Sunday, the 10th, from 1-2 to learn about drafting, treadling, and adjusting your various tension knobs to get you on the road to spinning more comfortably. Your goal in between classes is to get a few bobbins full so you can come back the next week to ply your yarns!
- Sunday, the 17th, from 1-2 to learn how to to ply and wash your yarns.

The December Spin-in is also on the 17th, so we will have a group of more experienced spinners around for asking questions and checking out all the different wheels!

Spinners will be provided with fiber for practicing in class. As always, a 10% discount on materials required for classes will be extended to students. If you find a certain kind of fiber easier to work with, load up on it before you head home after day 1!

Cost: $60 through 12/3
$70 after 12/3
Minimum spinners: 2
Maximum spinners: 4

Feel free to ask any questions in the discussion area of the event! Looking forward to welcoming more spinners into the fold. We will be seeing you at Northwest Yarns in downtown Bellingham soon!
