BEGINNING SPINNING ON A WHEEL
6 Sessions $165
Begins Thursday, May 12, 7-9:30pm, (no class, June 9)
Dye day-Saturday, June 25, 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 $40
Thursday, June 30, 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.

SPINNING MULTICOLORED YARNS FROM SOLID COLORED ROVING
2 Sessions $65
Thursday, July 7 & 14, 7-9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
If dyeing isn’t your cup of tea and you can’t find the right color combination in hand painted fibers, all is not lost. Using solid color roving we will card colors together to make new colors and heathered yarns. Then using different spinning and plying techniques, we will create our own rainbows. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED.
BRING WHEEL, LAZY KATE AND BOBBINS AND WOOL CARDERS IF YOU HAVE THEM. FIBERS PROVIDED.

WILD AND CRAZY YARNS

Saturday, July 16, 10-5pm
Debi Dodge, instructor
Inspired by Jacyee 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 YOUR WHEEL, ALL THE NORMAL SPINNING TOOLS (EVERYTHING) AND A LOT OF ENTHUSIASM!

SPIN THE CAMELIDS

Saturday, July 23, 1-4pm
Chris Switzer, instructor
From Camel to both Alpacas to Paco Vicuna and Llama, we’ll spin these wonderful fibers. You will blend natural colors, plus add silk, mohair or angora for a special look. Yarns and finished projects using handspun will be shown. INTERMEDIATE SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING YOUR WHEEL AND ALL THE PARTS, CARDERS AND SOMETHING YOU’VE MADE FROM YOUR HANDSPUN.

SPINNING 2
4 Sessions $110
Begins Thursday, July 28, 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.
