Our next spinning social will be on Saturday 28 October, in the downstairs classroom. As before, spinners of all levels are welcome, so long as you have your own spindle or wheel, and fibre. And if you are simply curious about what this spinning thing is all about, feel free to drop by and ask questions.
If you haven’t yet tried spinning, we have a comprehensive spinning fundamentals class coming up. The irrepressible Sherri Bondy will be teaching a two-session course for spinning beginers on Saturdays 11 and 25 November. Learn everything you need to know to convert fluff to yarn – spinning, plying, yarn & fibre characteristics, tools, techniques and so much more. Sherri brings with her a spinning ‘resource centre’ that is an education all by itself. Have you ever seen, never mind handled, yak down or qiviut? Do you know how many different kinds of cotton there are? Why do we care about rare sheep breeds? For the spinning-curious, this class is not to be missed.
And we’ll have another spinning social on Saturday 25 November, in the afternoon following Sherri’s class. A perfect time to practice new skills in a very relaxed and supportive group.
