Spin, Spin, Spin!

Learn to create your own yarn with spinner extraordinaire Donna Panner, founder of Spin City New York! Donna is teaching a spinning course in 3 modules.

Module 1, “Spinning Basics,” is a 4-week course on Wednesdays, 6:30-8:30, that covers drafting, spinning, plying, tying, worsted spinning, CD spindles, luxury fibers, and more.  This basics course is a prerequisite for the second and third modules, and also for “Spinning Wheel II”

When the basics course is completed, we have two optional modules:

On January 8 and 15, Donna’s Module 2 is “Fiber Prep and Carding.” Improve your spinning skills and learn the techniques of carding and combing wool and blending fiber!

Then on January 22, Module 3 is “Spinning Silk”---oh, boy! Donna will teach how to create yarn from various forms of silk and will show how to prepare silk hankies/caps for spinning.
