I am pleased to say there are 4 new spinners in Utah. My class with the Community Ed Department went smoothly and without a hitch. Everyone was enthusiastic and took quite nicely to using their drop spindles. I was a little worried that we had allocated too much time for the class, but it turned out to be exactly right. We finished the class with 15 minutes to spare. Unfortunately (in their excitement I presume) they departed before I could do a final demonstration on the wheel. Ah, but they will have opportunity in the up coming weeks as I am planning several spin/knit meetings very soon. What fun - I am always thrilled to see my students successfully spin their first yarn. I look forward to seeing how they progress.
