Spindle Spinning

Sunday, February 07, 2016

I'm still basking in the glow of the day...the very first "Tat-In" with four of my Arbutus Tatting students this morning. They had just the right questions to show that they have passed from beginners to intermediate tatters.

Had a tremendous, fun, fun, fun Spinning Class today at the Folk School. 12 Students. By the end of the second hour, ALL of them were producing yarn with spindles. Such interest, love of crafting, and enjoyment of the task! It was such a pleasure to be their teacher.

What a Spinning Class...11 paying students plus my assistant Rose who was SO VERY helpful getting me ready for the class. I was absolutely AMAZED by the commitment and dedication everyone put to learning spindle spinning. We had a man (board member) and his mother (He said this was her Christmas present), a mother and 9-year-old daughter, a llama farmer, a sheep herder, a new arrival to Washington, two neighbors...just an absolute wonderful mix.

    Great job passing along these skills. It's hard to find any one who knows how to tat now. I have a friend at church that spins her own yarn before she knits it into something absolutely lovely. Good for you passing on these crafts!
