Pick up your needles - but drop the spindle first:
Make smooth and lumpy-bumpy yarn from commercial and raw fibers using the drop spindle; preparing raw fleece for spinning or dying and spinning wheel demonstration. No experience necessary but you are welcome to bring spindles, wheels or fibers you already have.
