Spinning with a Drop Spindle

February’s meeting was a special program — An Introduction to Spinning Your Own Yarn!!!

Our own Shawna Beaudoin presented a wonderful interactive program, giving all who wanted to play an opportunity to try their hand at spinning with a drop spindle. Shawna shared some interesting tidbits of spinning history. She taught us about spindles and the basic physics of the different ones, how to turn the spindle, different fibers, skeining, plying, and twist. It was great fun. Shawna is an excellent teacher and we are very grateful to her for sharing her talent with us.

Yankee Yarn Swap

After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, Fishnets like to unwind with a little fun with their Yankee Yarn Swap. To participate, attendees must bring a gift of yarn, enough to make a scarf. Yarn need not be newly purchased, but it must be unused and clean with the ball band attached. It’s always a lot of fun to see what gets passed around the room.
