Garden News! I will begin teaching Introduction to Spinning up in Minneapolis this coming January! If you or anyone you may know would be interested or even would love a lesson as a Christmas gift, just let us know (we have gift certificates!). I am offering class on either the second or fourth Saturday of the month and all you need to do is give us a call or e-mail and reserve a time that works for you!
It's often difficult to decide on a wheel with the market so flush these days! We teach from Ashford and Louet and of course start with a double treadle which is easier to learn on. So, even if you are just getting a wheel and would like help in knowing the principles of spinning so you can make an easier decision, this class can help!
We work with every kind of wool from finer to coarser, preferring finer of course :) You'll enjoy the lesson on wool and get to take home a quarter pound of our house special 'Wood Lily' clouded roving!
Spinning is not a talent, it's an art! Just like learning to ride a bike or type, it's the practice that teaches and everyone goes at a different pace. We do offer a second class if help is needed with plying or just to continue the education, but most of our students do very well with one lesson only.
Thank you for visiting us this special time of year! Best wishes for a Blessed Christmas season filled with deep joy!
