  3. Wonderful class 5 Star Review

    Debbie is a wonderful instructor and was extremely patient with me and my brand new wheel and innate lack of coordination. Not only does she teach you about different techniques of spinning and plying, properties of fibers for spinning and finishing your yarn, she teaches you about the wheel mechanics (specifically about your own wheel). She is fantastic!

  4. Excellent class for beginners or as a refresher! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2013

    Debbie was a fantastic, patient instructor that took us through a wide variety of techniques. I've been spinning for several years, but took this class as a refresher. It was worth every penny. The fiber provided was top notch, I hated to use it for practice :O) I finally mastered long draw & am once again comfortable with my wheel.

  5. Great class even if you've spun a little bit 5 Star Review

    I got my wheel in early March and attended the class in mid-April. I learned a lot and am so much more comfortable on my wheel! I had considered not attending, but am glad I did. The instructor was awesome - knowledgeable and patient. The other students were a lot of fun. What a great way to spend the day!
