- What gem!!! Review by Hermine Kraus
I am a fairly new spinner and enjoy spinning But I was feeling. that my spinning didn't improve and I decided to get the video download from Rita Buchanan's workshop.....what a wonderful surprise. I not only learned a lot ( so far I've never counted how often I treadled for a certain length of fiber...I did it according to the mood that stroke me ;-) ) but I really enjoyed Rita's passion for fibers...and I'm sure that I will watch this video over and over again for the things that are still to be learned, but also to catch a little bit of Rita's passion for life and her work: Thank you so very much.....by the way: I would have loved to see how the dyed wool turned out.

- Most informative Review by Cynthia Moore
Having taken many classes from Rita, I knew this was going to be good and I was not disappointed. I'm not a great spinner, but always do better when I watch Rita spin and explain things.

- The subtitle says it all Review by Debbie Keahey
This workshop truly focuses on what it says it will: producing yarn in a way that works best for you and celebrating the joy of the creative process. As an intermediate spinner I enjoyed the opportunity to observe Rita's preferred methods (withs lots of description of options and which she uses when) and share in her enthusiasm. I also picked up a few new tricks and techniques that I can't wait to try out. She covers fibre prep, colour blending, singles and plying, finishing, and lots about sampling. I will likely be watching this again and feel it was a good value. Digital download was effortless on Mac.

- How I Spin Review by Nancy Winters
I loved this too. When Rita said she loves the way the fiber feels in her hands, I knew exactly what she meant! Now, I am going to get up from the computer and go back in time . . . to my wheel.

- Loved it, so glad I purchased it Review by Tania Andreia de Sousa
I am a new spinner, started on a wheel not a spindle, have been spinning for about one month now and I wish I had purchased this video one month ago. this video is for people that spin on a wheel. as a new spinner I learned allot the first time I watched it, this video gives you close up shots which are a must for me. She goes over how she spins, also goes over how she dyes fiber, clean fleeces and more, there is allot of information, its two videos. I found it to be a good video quality. It downloaded very quickly and was able to watch it right away. I have a Mac and it worked fine. I think its a good video for anyone that spins no matter the skill level.
