Topic: Sock Intensive - Day 1
Mentor: Amy King

Saturday’s program features Day 1 of a Sock Intensive by Amy King. Day 2 of the Sock Intensive will be held on Sunday at The Grange Hall in Glastonbury.

Day 1
The sock yarn you make now is ok but you know it could be better. Maybe you haven’t even ventured into making sock yarn because you’re not sure it’s going to hold up. What materials do I use? How do I spin it so it’s sturdy but not rope-like? We’ll answer these questions and more. You’ll walk out of the class ready to make an excellent sock yarn and already have several samples ready to go!

For those participating in the workshop, please bring a wheel in good working order with 4 (5 or 6 is even better) or more bobbins. Bring a ball winder if you don’t have a lot of bobbins. It’s also helpful to have a Niddy Noddy and a Lazy Kate. You must be capable of making yarn and have a good working knowledge of the wheel and be comfortable with basic spinning instructions. This is an intermediate class.

Materials Fee: $32.00 per student. You can pay via PayPal ($33.23) on the Nutmeg Spinners' Guild website (
