There is nothing more soothing or peaceful as spinning! Come twist the day away spinning fibers as light as clouds, creating novelty yarns, or learning other new spinning techniques from our highly qualified staff.

 
 


START SPINNING ON A WHEEL
6 Sessions $180
Begins Thursday, May 18, 7–9:30pm (no class June 8)
Dye day: Saturday, June 24, 10–3pm
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.

DROP SPINDLE SPINNING
1 Session $45
Thursday, July 6, 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.

FIBER PREPARATION
2 Sessions $70
Thursday, July 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 to try, please do so. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING YOUR OWN WHEEL.

ENGLISH LONGDRAW VS. AMERICAN LONGDRAW
1 Session $45

Thursday, August 17, 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.
