I just finished my Beginning Spinning class with Amelia. OMG! THank yo so. Much for making these available in this format! I bought my spinner at Madrona in 2013, played with it enough to spin something I wasn’t ashamed to knit with, but at that time, couldn’t find anyplace to take classes. I live halfway between Phoenix and San Diego, the yarn shops that taught spinning frowned on e-spinners. Not so much anymore. But, there is something to be said for taking a class from someone who is using the same spinner as you. Amelia was an engaging , patient, very good teacher. She did an excellent job and I will be taking more classes that you offer.
Can you tell me what kind of wood my spinner is crafted from? The number on the bottom is 1670S. It doesn’t look like any on your site. I want to get a lazy Kate to go with it very soon, but I am not sure what type of wood it is. I can send a photo if that would help. Seems like it was mesquite wood?
Again, thank you so much for making these available online!
