Handspinning clinic

OK, this blog will still be about the happenings around the farm and spinning! Crimp Haven Alpacas invited me to give a Drop Spindle clinic and it was this weekend. I had 6 students and by the end of the sesson everybody was making yarn!! Mike and Jeanne Wilson of Lexington, VA were the gracious hosts. They supplied the place and Elizabeth Jackson of Saville Hill Farm supplied the spindles. Elizabeth's husband makes these. As you can see we had a terrific time. I supplied the knowledge and some roving and we were off! Elizabeth also provided kits for sale and several people bought them. Four of these people were Alpaca breeders and others knitters. It's great when you can create something that you helped God raise right in your own backyard. Awesome!!
