Spinning Art Yarn: A course for Beginners
We are putting feelers out to see if there would be enough people (5-6 participants) interested in taking a beginning spinning course at our farm. This would be a one day course where you will learn how to spin Art Yarn. Each person will spin a unique skein of yarn even when taught a technique from the same teacher.
Art Yarns add texture, color, and artistry to anything you create.
You are ONLY limited by your imagination.
If you are interested, please email Kathy: firstname.lastname@example.org
