JC15 Beginning Spinning: Diameter Control with Judith MacKenzie

If you’ve ever said “I used to spin nice bulky yarn and I can’t spin anything but sewing thread now!” or “Everything I spin looks the same”, here is a simple spinning method that allows you and your wheel to work in harmony to spin the perfect yarn for the projects you have in your mind’s eye. Proficiency Level: Students should be able to spin a continuous length of yarn. Bring to Class: Spinning wheel or spindle. Handcards. Niddy noddy. Small combs or cards if you have them.

Class fee: $50.
Materials fee: None.
