START SPINNING ON A WHEEL
6 Sessions $195
Begins Thursday, January 18, 7-9:30pm
Dye day-Saturday, February 24, 10am-3pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
Spider Woman taught the Navajo women to spin with a spindle made of lightning and turquoise. While we can’t provide that kind of equipment, we can continue the tradition. Wool, greasy, clean and commercially processed is our fiber. The last class is an all day natural dye workshop. Women who are pregnant should take the dye class at a later time when they are not pregnant. ALL EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED.
PLEASE WEAR OLD CLOTHES.

SPINNING 2
4 Sessions $105
Begins Thursday, March 1, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
Now that you know what the knobs on your spinning wheel are for, is it time for another class? Spinning 2 will include such varied topics as t.p.i. (twists per inch), use of wool combs, chain plying and more. We will cover different techniques to give you more control over the size and twist of the yarn you spin. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. BRING YOUR WHEEL. FIBERS PROVIDED.

ENGLISH LONGDRAW VS AMERICAN LONGDRAW
1 Session $45
Thursday, April 5, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
What is the difference between English longdraw (double drafting) and American longdraw? It depends. We will spin wool and cotton both ways and you can see the difference between the two techniques and add another drafting method to your spinning repertoire. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. BRING YOUR WHEEL. FIBERS PROVIDED.

MOHAIR BOUCLÉ THE EASY WAY
1 Session $50
Thursday, April 19, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
If you like the look of designer yarns, but don’t like the time it takes to make them—this session may be just what you are looking for. We will take a little wool and a little mohair, spin and ply them together, add hot, soapy water and VOILÀ BOUCLÉ! No pushing or wrapping required just a little differential shrinkage. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. BRING YOUR WHEEL AND 3 BOBBINS. FIBERS PROVIDED.

DROP SPINDLE SPINNING
1 Session $45
Thursday, April 26, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
The “dreaded drop spindle” need not be feared at all. All it takes is a little practice and a sense of humor. Come use our spindles or bring your own. We’ll twist the night away.
ALL LEVELS WELCOME. USE OF SPINDLES AND FIBERS PROVIDED.
