to learn. Decorate clothing, bags, wall hangings, the only limit is your imagination! No
embroidery experience necessary. Sewing skills not necessary either, but helpful.

We will be making a brooch/shawl pin using zippers, roving and embellishments. The zipper is
hand sewn onto wool felt making an outline of a design. The inside is then filled in with wool
roving using the technique of needle felting. Buttons, beads, and other embellishments are added.


Sunday 1pm to 3pm

Beginner Drop Spindle Instructors Julie Mangnall & Jeanne Roster  
limit 10
$10 payable on registration
Kit fee of $15, pay directly to instructor in class

A great way to get started spinning without investing in a wheel. We start with the “park and
draft” technique. We talk about drafting techniques that can easily apply to wheel spinning as
well. Learn about different types of wool, and how to get the yarn off when you are done
spinning. Prepare to be amazed at what you can create!
The experienced instructors enjoy teaching this skill to others. Join them for a fun session of
learning to make yarn.
