Welcome New Spinners

I started a new “spinning” class this week at Place des Arts, with seven wonderful new beginners.  I look forward to getting to know each individual better over the next few weeks, as I introduce you to the gentle art of spinning yarn.  I love watching the progress as tense, wobbly movements with many breaks and joins produce that first lumpy yarn.  A week later, movements and thread begin to smooth out and breathing is calmer.  Later still, laughter and joy as handfuls of fluff more easily turn into smooth, continuous threads as hand-eye-foot coordination  kicks in and muscle memory takes over.

Spinning, I believe, is an inherited instinct.  As our spun threads strengthen, so too, do our connections to each other, and to our ancestors.  Welcome new friends to our spinning community.  Hope you like the neighbourhood.
