Terri is an excellent fiber artist, teacher and demonstrator. At our annual farm event, besides hand-on teaching, she also demonstrates her multiple talents including drop spindling, fiber prep, carding batts and rolags, hand carding & blending, and wheel spinning. We highly recommend Terri!
I have been spinning on a wheel for almost 30 years and no matter how many times I tried I just could not master a drop spindle. I had taken other classes, watched YouTube, and enlisted friends’ advice but still could not seem to ‘get it.’ After just 10 minutes with your gentle guidance of “Park & Draft” I was spinning on a drop spindle!!! Who knew I could spin yarn on a $2 spindle made from a wooden wheel & dowel? You had me convinced I can spin yarn with a rock!!
I found the non-technical approach appealed to me most because it just made sense for how I like to spin.[Spinning for Lace]
Loved your blending board class...I’m encouraged that I can do this....and have fun too![Blending Board Techniques]
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the spinning class today. You reinforced the things I already knew and encouraged me to move forward. I appreciate the time you took with each one of us to ensure success.
“A very good overall introduction.”
“Excellent presenter – class very worthwhile.”
... Terri is the ultimate at preparation for her classes. ... What I thought would be a simple class turned out to be quite technical si I was really glad to have expert tips. Thank you Terri for a great class![Blending Board Techniques]
“... it is an absolute treat to see her at work. I was floored the first time I saw her working in the New England Center.”[Silk Reeling Demonstration]
This was excellent! You were very well prepared & the materials handed out were excellent & well explained![Blending Board Techniques]
Absolutely love Terri’s teaching style. Her reliance [emphasis] on making yarn you like - not all the technical is so much more relaxing + non-threatening.[Spinning for Lace]
This was so much fun and very informative.[Color Blending]
... Terri is fun and patient so I really enjoyed the class.... Terri’s approach of teaching us how to spin with whatever equipment we have was so empowering.... Terri’s class helped confirm things I already knew, gave me tips on how to improve my spinning, and was simply an enjoyable day spinning with fun stories.[Spinning for Lace]
Terri adjusted the class to answer our questions.
