Have you always wanted to spin but haven't yet found someone with the patience and skill to teach you? You're in luck--Maggie Casey is here to gently lead you by the hand into the wonderful world of spinning. Learn about the simplest way to spin yarn, with the drop spindle, and use it to start adding twist into your fiber and make the yarn of your dreams.

With this workshop, Maggie:

  • Provides a description of the spindle's parts and styles of spindles as well as materials you need to get started.
  • Teaches the park-and-draft technique, showing how to take control of the process of spinning and master drafting, twisting, and storing your yarn on the shaft of the spindle.
  • Demonstrates how to spin continuously while standing up.
  • Shows how to take the yarn off the spindle and twist two strands together in the opposite direction to create a plied yarn.
  • Finishes with techniques for setting the twist, creating a skein, tying it, and washing it.

Maggie will have you making your own yarn before you know it. Create great yarn for any of your knitting, crochet, and weaving projects. There is truly no limit to what you can accomplish with a drop spindle in your hands.

A fantastic starter
Rating
What a fantastic lesson for starter drop spindlers. Concepts are well explained, camera footage is good, pace is excellent for beginners, and many points of why and how things are done when spindling made this video very good quality. I love Maggie's pace. I used a turkish spindly and just applied every thing Maggie taught to this. Her instruction regarding drafting (park and drive) was what other videos are missing and what I needed the most. Thank you so much. Review by Alison (Posted on 6/8/2018)

I very much enjoyed learning from this video.The free Interweave booklet "Drop Spindle Spinning: Learn How to Spin with Drop Spindles" can be used as a complement since it uses pictures from the video in its tutorial:https://www.interweave.com/article/spinning/what-would-a-world-overrun-by-spinners-look-like/ Review by JL (Posted on 8/29/2017)

I have M Casey's book, but wanted to see her video on learning to drop spin. She is a very knowledgeable spinning teacher. I learned a lot from watching this video and it has helped improve my spindle spinning. Review by Colleen (Posted on 6/21/2017)
Very good video
I am learning to spinning and, not being able to attend a real class, I think the video has been very helpful. It is clear, full of tips, easy to follow.
Thank you!
