What Drives Us:
Relaxation: Learning to design and spin you own yarn is a proven way to relax and unwind. Promoting focus and even breathing.
Creative Outlet: The fiber arts is a great creative outlet for those who feel the need to create but are not called to more traditional mediums of art.
Community: Learning to spin will automatically send you into a sense of community with both online and local groups. We would love to have you join ours and share your work.
History & Tradition:Spinning fiber into yarn is one of the oldest forms of human innovation and has been an important part of life in most cultures.
