Anchorage Weaver & Spinner Guild
This class is funded by the Jean Truscott Memorial Fund, which she so graciously provided to the Guild through her estate sale. There is no cost to guild members to attend the class. The Guild Zoom account allows up to 100 participants (that should be all of us!).
Join Patsy Zawistoski’s virtual spinning class Saturday October 17th, 24th and 31st from 10:00am to noon. Patsy will teach us a new way to ply, breaking plying rules, and plying S and Z twist together to make amazing, strong, resilient spiral yarns. If you can’t make a session, not to worry, the class will be recorded, and available to watch when you want to for two weeks after the presentation date.
Participants do need to pay for materials for the class. The materials are optional, use your own stash if you wish. You can purchase a class kit for all three classes for $34.00 or contact Laurie Sitkiewicz if you want to purchase a few individual items from the kit (907-240-5366, 907-277-4779 or [email protected]). If purchasing a kit, it needs to be paid for when you sign up for the class. Kits are non-refundable.
