Lying about Longdraw (3 hours) Whether you’ve never been able to spin longdraw or you’re just in a rut,  this class will help. The more ways you can comfortably draft, the more varied yarns you can create,and the better your chances are for finding joy in those yarns.   If you have just about given up on spinning woolen or worsted, make this class woolen's (or worsted's) last chance!  We’ll spend our time covering 4 different drafting methods: short forward, short backward, from the fold, and point of contact long draw. By the end of these three hours your be using all four draft and you'll be doing it painlessly and with a smile.  I promise.   

Materials Information

Bring to Class:  Working spinning wheel, 3 bobbins (or something to wind singles onto), a tension-able lazy kate, niddy noddy (small is okay)
