Learning to Make Yarn!

When I was getting ready to open The Golden Button I met Rose Garbien from Bittersweet Ridge Farm. Rose has a bunch of Shetland Sheep and Angora Rabbits. Rose makes her own yarn and her own soap and she knits and felts!!!  I wanted to learn how to make my own yarn for quite a while now…. So Rose agreed to do a Drop Spindle Workshop. Its a two part class where we learn all about different fibers and tools and how to make our own yarn. It was wonderful!

Here is my yarn before I took it off the Drop Spindle… We had soooooo much fun!!!!!

Next week Rose is going to show us her Spinning Wheel!!!!!!!! Can’t wait. Thanks Rose!

Don’t forget we have a Acrylic Painting Workshop… cost is $30 at 4:30 on Wednesday….
