Spinning a Yarn: Drop Spindle
Instructor: Laurie Schlitter
Class Fee $35.00 A $2.00 supply fee will be collected at the beginning of the class.
A drop spindle is a portable and inexpensive tool for spinning fibers into yarn. In this class, we will be using an easily made, simple drop spindle to turn fluffy, clean wool into a yarn to be used for weaving, knitting or crocheting. We will provide a drop spindle for use in class and wool for spinning. (A drop spindle of you own and additional wool is available for purchase for $8.66 or $12.99, depending on size of spindle desired.) Limit: 6 students/class.
This class is also appropriate for children Ages 8-12.
