    Join us for a fun afternoon, working on your own projects. This Lab is for Advanced Beginners and beyond. You need to bring your wool, mohair, alpaca or silk pre-soaked in vinegar, rubber gloves, plastic bins and dye to share. We use a variety of techniques and equipment - low water immersion, steaming, crockpot dyeing, etc. with consultation from an experienced leader - Judi Jetson and/or Beth Sellars - to get the result you want. If you like, bring magazine pages or photos with images you find appealing, and we'll help you mix dye colors to match.

    Level: Advanced Beginners to Expert

    Instructor: Beth Sellars and Judi Jetson bio

    The Spinning Study Group's purpose is to share the joy of handspinning. We welcome anyone from the professional spinner to those who are just beginning - all share a love of learning. Monthly meetings cover a range of topics, including different techniques of hand spinning and fiber processing, how to use handspinning tools, and other topics as determined by the group. For September - December 2020, we will conduct a breed study, spinning and plying samples of various types of wool, mohair, alpaca, llama and rabbit raised in our Blue Ridge Mountains region. Sample donations are encouraged.

    Whenever possible, our members volunteer to demonstrate spinning at local events and educational outreach programs. 

    This is not a learn-to-spin group, but we welcome those new to spinning to come a half-hour early (from 6 - 6:30pm) to get acquainted and request some help. Our meetings will be held in person at the Local Cloth studio, and members who wish to attend virtually will receive a Zoom link.
