Kristine Brooks teaches you to make you own yarn! Spindle spinning is an ancient craft that is portable, fun and inspiring. Learn about the different types of drop spindles, fiber types, uses and terminology. This hands-on workshop teaches you how to hold and draft the fibers for spinning, how to add fiber as you spin, how to store the newly spun yarn on the spindle, as well as how to ply the yarn and then finish or set it for final use.
Yarns can be used for projects from knit and crochet to embroidery, couching, weaving and a myriad of other creative endeavors. Come join the fun, learn a new skill and meet wonderful people from the fiber arts community of San Diego.
