Crafty Housewife Yarns logo etched in the handle
Individually hand- crafted of renewable native birch in NC
Tight grain and extra- ordinary flexibility, birch has long been the preferred wood for knitting needles and crochet hooks.
Hand sanded for exceptional smoothness and finished with a natural oil. Their beauty and smoothness increase with use as they develop a lovely patina with exposure to light and other natural oils from wool and your hands.
After much request I’ve made an online version of my local drop spindle and intro to spinning workshop.
This is 12 video online workshop designed to take the student from having never held fiber or a spindle all the way through 2 plying your final yarn.
There are also 4 bonus videos covering common troubleshooting that has been covered in local classes as well as how to set your yarn after it’s spun, and how to chain or “navajo ply “ on a drop spindle for beginners.
Also a recommended product guide from other small business for different types of spindles and spinning tools.
This course is perfect of anyone wanting to try something new and who may have been intimidated by technical spinning terms and techniques. This is designed to be a fun and light hearted approach course where you will be able to spindle your own yarn by hand at the end. All of the videos and content are the exact same step by step approach that I have used to teach others locally.
The videos are all filmed from the aspect of you and I being in the same space where I can show you exactly what I’m doing in great detail. I have taken great pains to really break down all of the small little details that other students have had questions about so that they are easy to understand.
We also have have a facebook and instagram community where you can show off your work and ask questions from all of our friends and CHY artist.
When purchased you will be immediately emailed the private link to the course and password.
