Saturday saw our Spin & Yarn group celebrating its first birthday with cake, coffee and all things woolly! We were joined by seven new spinners who tried their hand at both wheel and drop spinning under the expert tuition of group leader Sally Williams and group member Phil Hawkins, who has been spinning and building wheels for many years. If you would like to learn more about spinning or want to get to grips with that wheel you’ve had for years come along to next months group, and learn, chat and relax with our Spin & Yarn Group! Sessions are on the first Saturday of every month, and run from 11am until 1pm.
Yarn spun by group member Phil Hawkins, ready for his wife Fiona to knit into something fabulous!
