Building Blocks of Spinning

with Sarah Anderson
Video Workshop

Spinning is a craft that can be learned in hours, yet has infinite possibilities to be explored over a lifetime. In this video, Sarah Anderson teaches the building blocks you need for a lifetime of successful spinning—twist, draft, and control—and takes us on a tour of the yarn universe to see what you can create. You’ll learn:

  • The secrets of twist, the “glue” that holds yarn together
  • Techniques and fiber preparation for worsted and woolen spinning
  • Tips and techniques for spinning short fibers such as cotton
  • Basic balanced plying, chain (Navajo) plying, and troubleshooting
  • Spiral, cable, crepe, boucle, and other novelty yarns
  • Dos and don'ts of yarn finishing

Every technique and concept is explained clearly and simply in Sarah’s inimitable, enthusiastic style with video that lets you see all the action in amazing detail. Topics are presented in easy-to-find chapters so you can reference them again and again over your spinning career.


Everything you need is here! Join Sarah on a journey of fiber discovery and creativity that will enrich your spinning for years to come with this 237-minute spinning workshop!

So Complete!
I will agree with Bethane! This video is so great! Complete, S. Anderson is a great teacher, her voice is smooth and nice to hear , her techniques are so well explained I even was able to master Navajo ply to perfection. I am amazed on how easy she makes every technique, from slub yarn to boucle and more, some i never heard of before too and i spin for 4 years! With that dvd , I have no need for much more.... I purchase other about color work and prep but thats about it , This is THE complete one!!! Review by Christina (Posted on 4/3/2016)
Highly Recommend for New and Seasoned Spinners
I was a bit shocked that no one has reviewed this incredible DVD. I am not one to be able to travel for classes. This DVD gave me everything I needed to create a strong foundation of skills in spinning. Sarah Anderson is an amazing teacher. I find her dialog inspiring and educational each time I watch this. I have found this to have different meanings for me watching it several times since I purchased it.

If you are new to spinning you absolutely CANNOT go wrong with investing in this DVD. For those who have been around the block with spinning, I think one can still glean important information including different ways of approaching ways to spin and how one looks at the tools and fibers you choose to use.

I give this 20 stars :-)
