Classes in Indiana

Kate hosts spinning and knitting gatherings several Saturdays each month at the Trading Post in Pendleton. If you have questions about the session topics, skill level, or want to receive Kate’s monthly newsletter, contact katelarsontextiles@gmail.com.



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.

  1. I will be coming to trading post tomorrow. Bringing my wheel and need to learn how to spin the fiber. I already can ply but just can’t figure how to start spinning the fiber. Have been using a drop spindle up to now. But now I have a wheel I need the figure out how to spin on it. Thanks, see you there! Lee

    1. Hi Susan,
      I’m not offering classes for beginners only right now. Our group is so diverse and everyone wants to join in on Saturdays! You are welcome to join us any Saturday that classes are being held and I’ll be happy to teach you to spin on a spindle or wheel. As you can see here, classes typically run from 10-noon and 1-3pm ($15 each session).
      This Saturday will be an natural dyeing class, so that would be the only one I would suggest not joining to learn to spin. You’re welcome to join us for dyeing, but I’ll be running around the dyepots. You will get more attention from me on a different Saturday. : )
      Our Saturday group is so welcoming and helpful. We would love to have you join us! If you have further questions email me at katelarsontextiles@gmail.com.
      Kate
