Spindle Spinning Class

Monday night was our Spindle Spinning class. Each student walked away able to spin  yarn on their spindle and had their own handspun yarn to prove it.  Debbie taught us to "park & draft", ply, how to choose fiber, to use a niddy noddy and most importantly, how to create. We had a great time and hope to offer this class again in the future! 1-spinning class-002
