Here's a chance to try spinning on a wheel before buying your own. Many people, including Gandhi, found spinning to be a very meditative activity. You will learn how to turn wool fiber into yarn with the use of a spinning wheel. We will even play with hand spindles, wool prep and yarn finishing.

There will be several wheels available for spinning, and if you have a working wheel bring it along. You will leave class with your own hand spindle, wool fiber, and your own newly spun yarn.

About the instructor: Diane Thomson has been spinning since 1985 and enjoys teaching others. She has taught knitting classes at several yarn shops in the Twin Cities and currently teaches at Sisu Designs Yarn Shop in Ely.


Payment plan available: $100 deposit plus 1 payment of $55.00, paid every four weeks.
