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.
