Enjoyed the class!

I took Amelia’s group class last week. Did I ever enjoy Amelia’s sincerity, thoroughness, preparedness and sense of humor! You could’ve heard a pin or fiber drop as we the class listened. I’m watching the recording in bits now, and just have had relaxing times at my Amazing and Beautiful Hansen minispinner—finally, after a whirlwind baby year and now toddler year three months short of a full year of wonder. I’m a more relaxed grandmother with spinning in my toolbox!! Thank you, Amelia, for sharing your knowledge and inspiring us with your teaching!

What a delight!

Good morning! Wanted to let you know what a delight the spinning workshop with Amelia was. She demonstrated techniques in spinning, caring for the spinner, changing out parts as well as answered questions. Of course someone else’s question usually answers your own too. Thank you again for setting this up, Amelia was a joy. Looking forward to more classes in the future.

On Saturday I had an hour on-line session with Amelia, and it was excellent! She is warm and very knowledgeable, not only about spinning, but other related crafts as well. All of my questions were answered and she also saved me a lot of grief. One of the ways I want to use my homespun is braiding. I’ve been doing Kumihimo for a while and thought it would be great to make braids with my own spun silk. Amelia pointed out that when the yarn is on a bobbin, hanging down, it will spin, and the twist will go away. I was amazed that I hadn’t thought of that before. She then told me of a good way to prevent that from happening. In that hour I learned more than what I was expecting. The hour passed quickly, and fortunately she recorded it so I won’t forget anything. I heartily recommend her as a teacher. She is a lovely person and is easily understood. Thank you setting this up.
