xx-Sold Out-xx SP11 E-Spinners: Something Old and Something New with Judith MacKenzie
Wednesday, April 29 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Turf Valley – Belmont Room
We humans have been spinning since the beginning of time. We’ve spun on our thigh, on sticks and stones, on great wheels, on treadle wheels. We even made complex machinery that spins without us! Just when you might think there could be nothing new under the sun, along come e-spinners. In a variety of shapes and forms, these powerful, portable spinning tools have opened up a whole new world for people on the go, people with injuries, people living in small spaces. In this seminar we’ll have a look at what is available in the marketplace and how to get the most out of your spinner. We’ll spin a variety of fibers and yarn types. We’ll make plied yarns and designer yarns. Skill level: Advanced beginner, intermediate and expert. Maximum number of students: 15. Students should bring: E-Spinner with all of its parts, even the ones you’ve never used. Extra bobbins, niddy noddy, lazy kate, measuring tape, scissors and handcards. Knitting needles in a range that you like to knit with. Student must have e-spinner.
