We still have a few openings on our Spinzilla Team. You have until midnight September 30th to join Gate House Fiber Arts Spinners at Spinnzilla.org. Just follow the prompts.
We are meeting to Spin as a team if you can make it Tuesday October 3rd 4-7 PM and Saturday October 7th 10-1. Our final meeting day will be Tuesday October 10th 4-7 PM where you will need to bring your “piles” of yarn spun during the week for pictures and totals. Prizes will be awarded at that time based on the amount you were able to spin.
Also we have officially started ” Livingston Spinners”. A group that will get together at the studio the first Saturday of every month for fun spinning and friendship. Bring your wheel or spindle. For those who would like to join us but don’t spin call 810-923-1136 to sign up for a beginning spinning class. Generally I can have you up and running on a spinning wheel in 6 hours. Please do not purchase a wheel until you know the facts and find out which wheel suites you ergonomically. So many times people call and want to know if I have a certain wheel in stock only to find out when they come and try them that they really like a different one. We have drop spindles and a lot of roving suitable for the beginner right here at the studio.
The next Beginning Spinning Saturday is October 28th
The next Tapestry weaving Saturday is Nov. 19th 9:30-4
A Beginning Weaving weekend is being planned let me know if you are interested.
For all of the above Saturdays call 810-923-1136 to be put on the list. Spots are limited to insure you have quality instruction. Equipment is available for you to use during the classes and to purchase. There is a materials fee for all classes.
