Drop Spindling without the 'Drop'

Well, Little Red Mitten had it's first drop spindling class and, by the smiles (and concentration) on people's faces, I'd say it was a great success! A big thank you goes to our teacher, Janice Watterworth, for her inspiring class and helpful ways. Maybe we'll want to have an alumni class soon?
I really expected to hear lots of clunks from spindles falling to the floor but people seemed to get the hang of it quite quickly. By the end of the two hours, they all had spun and plied a length of fibre and were pretty impressed by what they had accomplished.

When the class headed out into the shop, the bubbly enthusiasm even convinced an "I have no desire to spin" person to sign up for the next class. Wow!

Hors d'oeuvres, anyone?

ps. Our next beginner class is Saturday, April 17 at 1:30. Hope you'll join us.

  1. I had such a great time! Thanks, Joan & Janice...I've been convinced to spin, though I didn't really think I would at the end of the class, and as soon as I get this Noro Scarf finished, I'll be at it like a fat kid on a Smartie!
