Spindle Savvy: Make your own yarn and drop spindle
Taught by Kim
Kim is the host of the CraftStash video podcast where she shares her love of all things crafty and diy. The show's motto is 'If you can't Craft it, Stash it!" because sometimes stashing ideas and inspiration is just as much fun as getting your craft on.

You may already know how to knit or crochet, but do you know how to make your own yarn? Learn why you'd want to go beyond using ready made yarn to create your own.
We'll focus on spindle anatomy and mechanics, learning about various spindle types. You'll make your own drop spindle in class using up-cycled CDs and a few hardware store staples. Basic spinning mechanics will be covered, and spindle making supplies will be provided.
