This is the first of two winter sessions of spinning, and will focus on beginners and those who might want a refresher for their skills. Bring your own spindle or wheel if you like, or use one of ours in the new Zuest Family Spinners' Cottage at the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum in Vista. Plan on a fun day learning about fiber, and how to make yarn using a variety of methods, ending up with spinning on a wheel. Along the way plan to pick up bits of history and spinning lore, as well.
Your $10 materials fee will provide various types of fiber for you to spin, and maybe some to take home as well. If you have some fiber of your own that you would like to work with, bring it along!
Also, please bring a lunch or snacks as desired. We do have a microwave, but no refrigerator, at the moment. The new building is climate controlled, but you may want to wear layers. Other tools and items will be available for your spinning pleasure.
More information will be sent out to folks who sign up, but if you have any questions feel free to contact us at email@example.com
