Spinning Classes with Linda Bauer come to the farm

We are very excited to have Linda Bauer from Bauer Family Farms teaching spinning, both drop spindle and at the wheel here at the farm. She is a masterful spinnner and works hard at her craft. Spinning daily has helped her develop techniques to produce exquisite yarns. She has used some of our hand-dyed rovings and created incredible yarn that exceeds the beauty of the roving!!

From drop spindle spinning to using a wheel, she is a great teacher of both technique and artistry. The drop spindle and beginning wheel spinning classes are on July 10th and the Intermediate class for Color Manipulation in Spinning is on
July 24th. More details are available in the Events section of our website.

If you have wanted to try spinning, we hope to see you in July.
