Spinning Lessons

I will be offering free spinning lessons to our fledgling weaving/spinning guild starting in July. The Northern Neck Spinners and Weavers are located in Heathsville, Virginia and we will be meeting the 2nd Sunday afternoon of each month from 2 pm. until 4 p.m. (to start).

The first month is an introduction to spinning on a drop spindle. Second month is various ways to ply using a drop spindle. Third month we bring out the wheels. Fourth month is specialty fibers. Fifth lesson will be fiber preparation (from raw fleece to finished yarn). After that we hope to have lessons on Inkle weaving, various ways to warp a loom, guest lectures and eventually we want to install ourselves in a studio where we can have the public come and sign up for classes.
