# 102  Learn to Spin with a Drop Spindle  - Kathy Moskal,   Instructor  10:00 a.m. - Noon 

Cost:  $ 55.00 / Student          All Materials Provided.  

Skill Level:  Beginner

Drop Spindles and roving are included for you to keep and will be supplied at class time.  Using a spindle is a very economical way to learn hand - spinning for a beginner.  Drop spindles are inexpensive to buy (relative to a spinning wheel) and also very easy to make.  Once you have mastered the spindle you will have learned the steps needed for spinning on the spinning wheel: drafting out fibers, twisting the fiber into yarn, plying, winding up and storing the spun yarn.  This is a very relaxed class!!
