The Basics of Spinning Class

$40.00

Learn the basics of spinning fleece into yarn with a handmade drop spindle. It's really quite magical and something that's been done for centuries. Now you can try, too.

Knit, crochet or weave with you own handspun yarn. Sign-up for our Introduction To Tapestry Weaving class and use it to weave ;)

Sheleigh (pronounced Sha-lay) Peers, your instructor, taught herself to spin on a spindle when she was 12 years old and, except for the occasional tea break, hasn’t stopped since. She is so passionate about spinning (and many textile arts) and loves to weave stories and history into her classes. 

If all goes well, everyone will go home with their very own handspun yarn. Or at least some great stories of how they tried and tried.
