- Simple, clear instructions to achieve one kind of yarn Review by Debbie Keahey
This workshop accomplishes the goal of teaching how to spin big and lofty yarns. These aren't novelty or art yarns, just good basic big and lofty yarns. While the focus is quite narrow, and it is a shorter and less expensive video than many of those available, it is amazingly thorough in covering basic information about wheel mechanics, using a niddy noddy, and so on, which would make it a good choice for beginning spinners. As an intermediate spinner I picked up a few little tricks, but mostly the video just confirmed what I already knew about making these yarns. Still, it was a very enjoyable workshop. Maggie has a very calming presence and a nice sense of humour.
