Register For Workshop


Your knitting teacher will tell you to swatch, your weaving teacher will ask you to sample and your spinning teacher will tell you take your wool from yarn to fabric. It feels like such a waste of time when we just want to get to the fun part. Let me show you how to make sampling fun and the things you can learn just by taking that bit of extra time and fiber. We’ll also talk about making a sample library so that future sampling can be cut down as the same fibers are used again and again. 

Students should be able to spin a consistent thread.

Materials Information

 Please bring a spinning wheel in good working order or a spindle for sampling
