Spin-In with Laurie Olson Williams
Drop-spindle spinning is the process of taking washed and carded wool and twisting it into yarn.
It is an ancient method of spinning that requires only basic equipment. The spindle resembles a large top and the fibers are attached to the base. Laurie will demonstrate how to draft (or pull) the wool fibers out in a continuous flow, then use the spindle to twist the fibers into yarn.
A drop-in spinning demonstration and clinic for spinners at all levels, this is an opportunity to watch drop-spindle spinning and give it a try before committing to a class. If you already spin, it is a chance to learn some tips and techniques from Laurie. If you're an experienced spinner who just likes a little company while working, grab your spindle and a roving and join us! Free.
