    Teacher is amazing and has a thorough knowledge of this subject. The class was fun and up beat and Ashley made sure everyone walked away being able to use the drop spindle and that our technique was good. She was happy to answer all questions. I highly recommend this class.

    a great class for the novice spinner-highly recommended for those who want to learn how to spin on the spinning wheel. Instructor is patient and truly cares that her students not only learn the basics but have FUN while doing so. I can't recommend this class or instructor highly enough!
