Sister Jane taught an interesting spinning workshop on Saturday, Dec. 5th.  Five persons attended, and they seemed to have an enjoyable day.  Our pictures are a bit dark…hope you can make out that spinning is actually going on – even with a hand made drop spindle!

Pam and Mary Ellen are hand weaving – Jack is spinning.

Demonstration time.

Below, Mereth is using a drop spindle she made.

    Hi, Sister Terry!! A little slow, but just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed spending the day with you TRYING to learn to spin. Your hospitality and delicious meal was wonderful. Hope you and the alpacas are all keeping warm. I’m still doing a lot of knitting and crocheting. I was also wondering if you could email me the pattern for the fingerless mittens you made, or if it’s a free pattern online to give me the link. (On Ravelry, maybe?) They were so pretty. Thanks so much, Janet

      Hi, Janet, you can find those mittens on moonarts.com – if you google midnight knitter – potluck mitten pattern you will get it.
      Come on – keep trying at spinning – you will GET it, and enjoy it! Peace. Sr. Terry
