START SPINNING DVD, Maggie Casey with Eunny Jang
We highly recommend this DVD set for folks who want to learn how to spin. Maggie Casey is a wonderful teacher – she knows spinning inside-out, and has taught more beginner spinners than anyone I know. She knows how to present all this valuable info about spinning in managable, bite-size pieces.
Maggie starts you out with a spindle, so you can slow the whole process down and focus on how to form the yarn, and then takes you through how to use and adjust a spinning wheel.
“Follow along with Eunny Jang as she learns the ins and outs of spinning from spinning teacher extraordinaire Maggie Casey.
“This 2-disc DVD set will take you from just wool to good yarn and beyond. Learn how, when, and why to pre-draft your fiber; how to adjust your spinning wheel; how to spin good single yarn; and how to ply and finish a good skein.
“Plus, you’ll see the basics for carding and combing, spinning with a long draw, spinning worsted weight, spinning from the fold, and more.”
Make the yarn of your dreams! You can buy yarn anywhere, but spinners know that the best yarn is the kind you make for yourself. Start Spinning takes you from loose fiber to yarn made on a spindle and spinning wheel, with friendly advice and a sure hand at every step. Developed over two decades of teaching beginners, Maggie Casey’s techniques and tidbits will have you creating delightful yarns to knit, weave, crochet and admire.
