Spinning @The Altered Stitch

As if I needed a new obsession!!!

If you’ve been following us on Instagram...you’ve probably seen that I’ve become quite obsessed with hand spinning yarn! It’s really relaxing & it feels like a different type of creating vs. when I knit. Don’t get me wrong...I’m still obsessed with knitting too...but man, I love me some spinning fiber!!! We have a great spinning & weaving teacher, Anna...I took a couple of lessons from her, and then I just started experimenting and spinning as often as possible. Friday nights during our Knit-Along, we also do a “Spin Along”! You can bring in your own wheel and set up or you can buy some fiber and use one of our wheels for free. That’s from 6pm-9pm on Fridays after the store closes. If you want to practice spinning on our wheels during the rest of the week, you can rent studio time on our wheels for $10/hr. We’ve got some great deals for people wanting to buy package deals on studio time & discounted rates for people currently taking spinning classes with Anna. We’ve got some exciting fiber in store already from Countess Ablaze, Spun Right Round, Manos Del Uruguay, and Malabrigo. But the best is yet to come I think because we have just scratched the surface of hand spun yarn. Be on the look out for more news coming...

PS. Happy Equinox!
