Spinning Study Group

The Spinning group continues to meet every 3nd Saturday in the Ruth Maney Room, just down the hall from the Fiber Studio. We meet from 10:00 am-2:00 pm and lunch is informal, bring a sandwich if you want. Stay for the entire time, or make an appearance. We encourage people of all skill levels to drop in; it is a great place for new spinners (or wannabe spinners) to learn from accomplished spinners, and a great place for accomplished spinners to share the craft. Plus, we always have a good time.
