Abby saved me from potential heartache!
Rating
I've been spinning for about a year now, and want to take on my first large project. I'm so glad that I watched Abby's video on Getting More Spun: Spinning to Knit Large Projects. This video saved me from a lot of potential heartache by showing me how to calculate, pace, plan and think through my project so that I get the yarn I want for the finished object. The lessons were practical, and Abby's teaching style is logical and clear. Thank you Abby! Review by Cindy Lou (Posted on 8/21/2017)
Abby is one of the best
When I saw the release of this dvd I had to buy it. Abby never disappoints and as I love spinning for larger projects this was just what I needed. Definitely add this did to your collection. Review by Desiree (Posted on 1/23/2016)
Encouraging and easy to follow
Abby is a great teacher. Her very down-to-earth approach to a huge project makes it look easy. Her suggestions, methods and approach are encouraging and helpful, without giving the impression that hers is the only right way to do it. I'm very glad this video exists.

this was a great video. It has very easy things to get you started on that big project and things I didn't know about as you go along that big long road Thanks Review by Dean (Posted on 11/23/2015)
Great instructive video
Well done, clear concise and very informative. I have been wanting to start a large project for some time now and have been hesitant as how to go about it. Now I'm feeling confident I can make the yarn I want.
I learned a lot from her tips as well. Will be buying more of her videos soon.
