"I'm a longtime knitter and I've always been curious about spinning my own yarn so I took this course, just for fun, to see what it was all about. I feel like I got exactly what I wanted ... I spun a few of my own sweet little bundles of yarn that made my friends all ooh and ahh. Dru is super nice and it feels like a close friend is there walking you through all the steps. It was great!"
