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 $195
Begins Thursday, September 13, 7–9:30pm
Dye day Saturday, October 20, 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 $155
Begins Thursday, November 1, 7–9:30pm (no class November 22)
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.

TWIST
1 Session $40
Thursday, December 6. 7–9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
Yarn needs twist, without it we would just have fluff . The question is how much do we need and how much do we want? It depends! It all depends on how you are going to use your yarn; sock yarn needs more twist than yarn for a lace shawl. In this class we will practice controlling the amount of twist that goes into yarn so you can make the most appropriate yarn for your project. We will spin several different fibers to see that twist is not a one size fits all proposition. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING YOUR WHEEL, LAZY KATE AND THREE BOBBINS.
