        This is a wonderful way to learn different spinning techniques-some wild,others wacky-and all funky and fun!! The instructor has patience and enthusiasm that is infectious-very inspiring to a rank novice such as myself. The techniques covered eliciting loads of "Ooo's and Ahhh's" and "this isso cool!!" from many of the students. I most definitely will take this class again.

              Wonderful class! I have lots of new goodies in my spinning bag to try over the winter months. Ashley is an enthusiatic teacher. Her "can do" attitude is infectious. This class is full of new techniques and information nuggets. Ashley helped me correct some of my bad habits and at the same time enabled me to develop some fun new skills. I came away from this class delighted with what will be able to do with my spinning wheel. Thanks Ashley!
