I was thinking how cool it would be to find some other spinners in MN! I would love to get a spinning group going or just make some local connections. So are you living in Minnesota?

sigh... I wish I were in Minnesota, because it would be fantastic to have spinning buddies!  The ladies around my county (here in Pennsylvania) were a little "freaked out" by my first couple of skeins.  They said that spinning impractical or novelty yarn is silly. Tongue 

And the wheel I got from you is fantastic!  I have been spinning non-stop!  The Babe Fiberstarter is a perfect beginners wheel for folks like me!

I'm so glad to hear that you like the wheel!! Keep up the spinning and keep intouch.

I'm trying to learn to spin with a drop spindle (studio apartment).  I have some wool roving, and a ready source of angora from bf's parent's bunny.  Not too proficient yet though, and easily distracted.  I assume you're familiar with Northern Lights Handspinners Guild?  http://www.woolworks.org/guilds/mn.html
