How did they spin that? Learning from Handspun, handwoven or historic fabrics
Materials fee: $10
We will start by discussing what information we need and how to obtain it from a written description or piece of fabric. We’ll then look at a range of handspun and millspun textiles before practicing the techniques on a fabric sample.
Attendees should bring a notebook, writing tools, 12” ruler, long pins or needles, a spinning wheel or spindle. Some form of magnifying lens will be useful (hand lens, +3.5 reading glasses).
