drop spindle“SPINNEY DIPPING”
Beginning Spinning with Drop Spindle

with Judy Kamei

Saturdays, February 9, 16 & 23 • 1:00 -3:00 p.m.

A great introduction to spinning your own yarn.
During these three sessions, Judy Kamei will show you how to spin using a drop spindle, introduce you to the fibers used for spinning, show you how to use hand cards to blend colors, and give you a test drive on a spinning wheel. You’ll learn different techniques when spinning with roving, i.e. “park and draft,” “thigh rolling,” and “suspended spinning,” plus how to “wind the copp.” Don’t worry…you’ll learn the definitions also! Plus, you’ll go on to learn about plying ball and color blending. Beware….this may start you on a whole new fiber path!

Spinning Workshop fee: $75, plus materials fee (spindle and roving)

 

DanDohExtra special event…DANDOH TRUNK SHOW

Saturday, March 16

Many of you enjoy knitting DanDoh patterns while others have swooned over Yumiko Alexander’s designs. Now here’s your opportunity to meet and visit with Yumiko during her one-day trunk show. She will bring over 30 of her models, knit and crocheted in her special yarns made in Japan. You are welcome to try any of these on. In addition, Yumiko will talk about her yarns and designs, and how some of her designs are made and how they react when worked in her different yarns. We are very proud to have partnered with DanDoh since the very beginning and are thrilled to have her here at ABYC.

Trunk Show 10 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. • Yumiko Alexander’s “Inside DanDoh” 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
