Learn how to create your own beautiful yarn easily and inexpensively!

Follow along while Amy guides you in learning a basic spinning technique that has been used for centuries throughout the world.

Amy will show you an easy “twist and draft” method developed by Abby Franquemont. It’s so easy to make yarn this way, even little kids can do it!  You’ll have fun, learn a new skill, and be able to make single and 2 ply yarn in only an hour!
