I have completed my Master Spinner Level One course and it has been a journey! Going into the program I was not sure what to expect. I have learned so much and it was a ton of work but worth every minute of it. I took level one and level two this past year with level 3 coming up in July. I feel now more then ever I have a deeper appreciation for wool and fibered animals. I have a whole new understanding for wool and how to spin it based on the breed characteristics. More surprising then anything is that I have gained confidents not only in my spinning but my writing as well. Over the next few months I will take you on some of my journey through images and my written experiences of the process. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is serious about wanting to expand their knowledge on hand spinning, weather you are a beginner or have been spinning for 20 years. Now to start working on level two!!! Here is more information about the course and I hope you stick around to follow me on my journey of becoming a master spinner!
