xx-Sold Out-xx SP19 Intuitive Spinning with Jillian Moreno
Friday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Turf Valley – Ellicott Room
If you don’t like technical spinning or stopping to do a lot of measuring, you can still get the yarn you want for a project. In this class we will explore the intuitive style of spinning for drafting and plying. You’ll learn how to use your eyes, hands and a few guidelines to get the yarn you want. We will spin sample yarns of different sizes and styles and learn to keep a yarn consistent without measuring. We’ll discuss exactly when and what to measure when you’re spinning for a project (hint, it’s not much). Skill level: Advanced beginner. Maximum number of students: 16. Students should bring: A wheel in good working order, 3 bobbins, a lazy kate, a niddy noddy, tags to mark samples, pen and paper to take notes, baggies for sample fiber, and an idea for a yarn to spin that is not your everyday spin.
Class Code: SP19 Class Fee: $55. Materials Fee: $20.
