Building Blocks of Spinning

Workshop DVD with Sarah Anderson


Spinning is a craft that can be learned in hours, yet has infinite possibilities to be explored over a lifetime. In this 237-minute workshop, 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
  • 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 to spin the yarn you want is here!
