Build on the Basics of Plying Yarn with Stephenie Gaustad
If you enjoyed our first spinning webinar with Stephenie Gaustad, then you won’t want to miss out on part two! Join us for the second installment of a two-part series, Bringing It All Together: Tools and Techniques for Plying Yarn, on Tuesday, July 30 at 1 pm EDT.
Stephenie is here to answer all of your questions about how to ply two or more yarns together, as well as a variety of techniques that include crossing reel singles, plying your own leader, how to keep a level bobbin profile, and much more.
Stephenie will also teach you about the equipment you’ll need such as:
- A lazy kate
- Bobbins full of spun singles
- A spinning wheel
You’ll have the chance to ask Stephenie directly about any of your spinning questions or discuss challenges that you encounter. If you can’t join us for the live event, you will automatically receive a recording of the seminar in a follow up email as part of your registration.
We look forward to seeing you on July 30!
