SPINNING 2
4 Sessions $125
Begins Thursday, May 9, 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, Navajo 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.

FIBER PREPARATION
2 Sessions $75
Thursday, June 13 & 20, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
Confused about how you should prepare your favorite fleece? It depends. Why do you card some fibers, comb others and what do you do with a flick carder? We will work with combs, flickers and drumcarders and see what happens. Shuttles will provide fiber, but if you want to bring some of your stash, please do so. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING YOUR OWN WHEEL.

BOUCLÉ (YARN WITH LOOPS)
1 Session $55
Saturday, July 6, 1-4pm
Debi Dodge, instructor
Time to play with the lovely fiber, mohair. We will spin and card Mohair first to get a feel for this yumminess. Then we will do a faux bouclé, a true bouclé, some glazing, and some tail spinning. Mohair is quite versatile and should not be feared. MATERIALS PROVIDED. INTERMEDIATE SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. BRING YOUR WHEEL, CARDERS, EXTRA BOBBINS, LAZY KATE AND NIDDY NODDY.

DROP SPINDLE SPINNING
1 Session $45
Thursday, July 11, 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.

BEGINNING SPINNING ON A WHEEL
6 Sessions $195
Begins Thursday, July 25, 7-9:30pm
Dye day-Saturday, August 31, 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.

WILD AND CRAZY YARNS
1 Day $80
Saturday, July 27, 10am-5pm
Debi Dodge, instructor
Inspired by Jacey Boggs… these bumps, beehives, halos, coils, cores and encasements are to die for! OMG! These are all wild wonderful and crazy yarns with the structural integrity you are looking for in your special projects. The samples are the proof of the pudding. INTERMEDIATE SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING ALL THE NORMAL SPINNING TOOLS (EVERYTHING) AND A LOT OF ENTHUSIASM!
