Trading Post – Spinning and Knitting
$15 for each two-hour session. This is a very casual, open-format gathering and you should feel free to bring questions and your knitting, spindle, or wheel. If you have something specific you would like to learn or you are new to the group, just send me an email. Each session will have a topic for discussion. The morning classes tend to focus on spinning and the afternoon classes focus on knitting.
