I was thrilled to attend an all-day Spinning workshop at the Minnesota Textile Center. (Definitely recommend their classes)
They introduced us to the spinning wheel, gave us some pointers and then gave us fiber and let us play. They even let me use a wheel that is exactly the same as the one I have at home so I could get some practice.
I am so pleased with my results. I can't believe it was my first - definitely not perfect but I made it! ;-)
