Class starts tonight at 6:30!

Tonight I start my 1st class.  Beginner spindle spinning.  Wonder if I have any students?

I will be going in early and working in my class room...sorting, cleaning and prepping.

I even got out my spinning wheel...can't quite seem to get the hang of it again, even though the spindle spinning came back to me reasonably easily...

Went through my stash and have lots of fibers.  Most of them raw and unprocessed.  Wool, angora rabbit, llama, dog hair ( Lacy's of course), lamb's wool, raw cotton,....

My friend KraftyMax is even sending me new semi-precious gemstone donut pieces so I can make myself some new aesthetically pleasing small spindles.  This will also help encourage my students to make their own.  We all know I believe in making your art more economical.  There are even Cotton fields here and I am definitely going to encourage cotton spinning.  The one time I went to a Cotton gin I actually came home with a trunk load of  "free" cotton.  This is what I will be using for my students.  We will even experiment with dyeing some of it!!!  Should be loads of fun.  Now all I need is those students!!!

Wish me luck and I will keep you posted.
