Sissel Marit Jensen from Bodo Norway, is an experienced spindler. She will be visiting St. John's in early August during which time she will offer an introductory class on drop spindling. If you have ever wanted to create your own yarn, this is the chance to learn. Drop spindling can be used on its own to create yarn, or can be learned as a precursor to spinning with a wheel. 

During this course you will learn:
- Tools for spindling 
- Fibres and\ fibre preparation for spindling
- Managing the leader 
- Drafting and creating twist
- Fancy yarns
- Plying 
- Finishing the yarn
- You might even enjoy a bit of Viking lore!

The class size is small so there will plenty of opportunity for personalised attention. By the end of the class you will have produced a mini skein of your own and will be ready to create more.

The Drop Spindling kit includes:
- hand made drop spindle in maple
- leader 
- hand dyed Corriedale roving
- Hand dyed Dorset fleece

Cost of this session is $79 (tax included) and may be paid in-person at Wool Trend or by contacting Deidre at 709-726-3242. Space is limited!
