11  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: Call for experienced spinners who would like to help with Learn to Spin 2010 on: January 18, 2011 07:36:57 PM
Ditto to what Bella said. I haven't logged onto Craftster in a bit or kept up with Facebook but I am not sure what Jane's plan is. She popped one day and said she'd have the lesson up the next week but that's the last I heard. She's active on FB but I haven't gotten a response. I had a lesson wrote out but just put it aside because she said she had one. We also had volunteers to do the lessons but we let it go.

If anyone hears from her let us know. I'll do anything I can to help with the spinning board for sure...

sarahj2001 - Love all of your yarns. I actually think that the greyish one with the dying "issue" is cool. It would make something good for a guy. Like some stripes in a hat or something. It would be cool for weaving too! That could be interesting to see how the colors shape up. I really love the blue though. It reminds me of candy.

Slingmomma - Love it! Kool Aid is God's invention. I never thought about how much I'd use it for stuff OTHER than drinking! lol

I have a few yarns. I can't remember if I've shared them but I don't think I have.

On the bobbin, in progress yarn: chartreuse green, soft and luscious merino fiber from WC Mercantile "The best little yarn shop in Texas!" LOL It really is GREAT fiber though. I recommend them. I'd love to visit their shop!! Who knows, since I live down here I may go visit one day. Anyhoo, I LOVE this yarn. I'm going to make mittens or fingerless gloves out of them.

Bamboo fiber from The Fiber Lady. She dyed this fiber. I bought it at the DFW Fiber Fest last year. It has tones of pinks, blues and silvery greys.

This one is a wool roving that I received from penguino in a fiber swap. It really is lovely, like berries!


A medium thick wool yarn that was dyed by Craftster's Nesse. I bought it from her in STS

That is all! Wink

Very cute! I love how easy it is to whip up a homemade loom and go to town. I forgot how much fun it was to weave in 5th grade when everyone had to do it in art class.

So what did you use there? Is it yarn or fabric? I have crappy vision so I'm not sure. It looks like fabric to me.

I love it! Sounds like it's perfect for what you need!

Jane - Did you get any of our messages? If you want any of us to send what we've written we can. We had some volunteers to help with lessons because we couldn't get into touch with you and weren't sure what was happening. I actually talked to sweets4ever about it all. Anyhoo, I was just trying to keep things going while you were busy. Smiley I can use the tutorial on my blog if you don't want it. I don't know if it's what you would have written because I have a fairly unique writing style, sometimes too quirky.  Wink Cheesy I don't know if anyone else got anywhere on their chapters but I'm sure they'll pipe up if they did. Let me know. ~ Whitney

Well, we had tax free weekend in TX for back to school. Clothes, school supplies, etc. are tax free for one weekend. So it was INSANE in TX today. Everyone from this area were out shopping!

wanderingskopos - Thanks so much!!! Spinning to ply needs to be about spinning singles to ply, not actually plying. So it would need to contain info about twist and spinning in ways specifically for different types of plying. If you think you could help with the plying lesson as well you could go ahead and PM Belladune, she has volunteered to handle that lesson if you guys want to combine brains for it. Wink

Also, we are focusing on the drop spindle. If you want to look at some of the other lessons (everybody really) you will see how the first two are formatted. Whatever we do, I'd like to go back and edit to match Jane Doe's first lessons.

Well I'm not putting up the next lesson for at least another week or so at the rate I'm moving. lol So it doesn't have to be done until I would say the first week of September. Is that good? It would be so awesome of you to help with that!! Thank you!!

I soak too, on my niddy noddy, but it would be cool to include links on steaming. I know that people like to do that as well. Smiley

My crafty e-mail address is sewmamalady@gmail.com. You can reach me that way if you want to. Probably easier than logging on everytime. Bella you can reach me that way as well!

froggyfibers - Thanks for offering help! In general, I am just needing any sort of useful info that would be good for first time spinners. I am working on "spinning on a spindle" now so that's covered. But any of the other lessons we need help with. Belladune says she can help out with plying and designing yarn, but I'm sure she'd even appreciate help with tid bits of info for that. Whatever you have to offer, we can use! lol

No problemo! We love our Craftster and our Craftster loves us. Wink It's fun anyway! I haven't wrote out a decent tutorial so I'm really working on my skillz. haha
