SATURDAY 6th NOVEMBER 4.00 - 5.30pm

Silks Room, Newton Abbot Racecourse


A taster class making your own yarn using a spindle. We will use the "park it" method to turn wool fibre into yarn, which you can then practise at home.

You  can borrow a spindle during the class and may buy this for £11 after the class if you wish.


Jen Best of Beaker Button has taught extensively, in a variety of textile disciplines including knitting, spinning, crochet, felting, stitching, weaving and button making. She is the author of six craft books on Dorset buttons, designs and makes her own button kits, and is completely addicted to wool. She will tell you she is allergic to boredom!
