Prerequisites:  The only prerequisite is an open mind and a desire to learn.

Class Description:
The Spindle Clinic is sure to have something for everyone! Most spinners, both new and experienced, have a spindle in their stash that gives them trouble. Or sometimes it may be a particular fiber/spindle combination. Do you have a spindle that has been sitting idle because the two of you just don’t seem to get along? Would you like to improve your relationship with your spindle and/or fiber options? Bring your spindles, the ones that you love and the ones that you hate, and whether you’ve lost the magic or never actually found it in the first place; our goal is to bring the Spindle Magic into your spinning!!   As with the Introduction to Spindle Spinning listed above, we will begin with the basics of drop spindle spinning using the “park and draft method.” Included in the workshop will be discussions and demonstrations of various types of spindles, drafting and plying methods and spindle care.
