Spinning: Learn the age-old craft of hand-spinning fiber into yarn in this fun class taught by Fancy Tiger Crafts co-owner Jaime Jennings. Learn to spin wool roving into a rustic yarn on a drop spindle—a simple, portable tool which originated thousands of years ago. Connect with your ancestors while learning this relaxing and meditative craft. Materials fee includes a drop spindle and 2 ounces locally-sourced roving grown at the Lyons Farmette (I forget if we're doing this or if you want me to bring fiber) Materials fee with no fiber - i.e we use yours would be $10 on my end - with fiber is $15
