Tips and Tricks for Better Spinning
This class will cover tips and tricks to improve your spinning and help you produce the best yarn you can. Your instructor will teach you techniques that really make a difference in the quality of your end product. The class will address topics like organizing and planning your spinning to obtain a more consistent yarn when working on larger projects, rewinding singles before plying, setting up your Lazy Kate for optimum plying, changing your string drive band, general wheel maintenance, and more. Bring your questions and any general spinning and wheel maintenance issues you have and we'll troubleshoot.
