START SPINNING
6 Sessions $210
Begins Thursday, January 9, 7–9:30pm
Dye day-Saturday, February 15, 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
Monday, January 27, 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.

YOU CAN'T TELL A BRAID BY ITS COLOR
2 Sessions $85
Thursday, February 13 & 20, 7–9:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
We fall in love with those beautiful hand dyed braids and then are sometimes surprised when the yarn doesn’t meet our expectations. We will look at the way braids are dyed and how that affects the colorplay. Then we will spin the braids and see how many different looks you can get from one roving. BEGINNING SPINNING SKILLS REQUIRED. FIBERS PROVIDED. BRING YOUR WHEEL & AT LEAST 4 BOBBINS.

SPINNING 2
4 Sessions $125
Begins Thursday, February 27, 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.

TASTE OF SPINNING
3 Sessions $125
Friday, March 6, 10am–12:30pm
Maggie Casey, instructor
If you have always wanted to spin, have taught yourself a little, or haven’t spun for awhile, this workshop will be just what you need to gain confidence and skill. We will start with a beautiful fleece, learn to card, spin, ply and set the twist. Then we will spin woolen and worsted yarns, some commercially prepared fibers and discuss wheel maintenance. ALL EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS ARE PROVIDED. PLEASE WEAR OLD CLOTHES.
