Understanding Yarn Through Hand Spinning

Lori Patterson

of Abstract Fiber
Thursday, December 10th, 2020
Virtual Program starts at 7 p.m.

Our meeting is virtual so we can stay connected to our fiber community. 
Hand spinning your own yarn is positively the best way to understand yarn. And when you understand yarn you can genuinely make your knitted projects truly your own. In this talk, Lori will provide a clear roadmap for learning about hand spinning yarn and how it can help you get to know your yarn that much better.
