Foundations of Spinning

Learn what to do after you take your wheel out of the box, with expert guidance from renowned fiber artist and author Amy King. You’ll begin by getting to know your wheel, its drive system and what each part does. Next, get warm and fuzzy with fiber! Learn about different fiber types and the various states in which you may find your fleece. Discover proper posture and hand placement as you prepare to spin. Amy will also work through a few wheel games to familiarize your body with these new movements. Then, find out how to attach a leader to the bobbin as you practice spinning with several different fibers. You’ll work through honing your skills, creating twists and even journaling your yarn to track your impressive improvements! Plus, explore a variety of plies as you learn Andean plying, plying from bobbins, cable and more before finishing your yarn with ease. Finally, find out how to care for your wheel so that it’s always ready to go for a spin!

Fiber Festival of New England! Big E complex in Springfield MA. This festival follows hot on the heels of Rhinebeck but it's indoors and it has a lot of different vendors to offer. I'll be there with Spunky Eclectic. This is my last vending show of the year so I'm a lot silly and if you catch me with a lull, I'm happy to help you work on whatever spinning you need help with.
