Pendle Stitches Workshop

Saturday was spent in Clitheroe at Pendle Stitches, with Lyn and Ginny, spinning for the whole day - bliss!

The sun was shining, which, lets face it, we all needed a bit of. So, people were happy and the shop had light streaming in which made it a joy to work in.

Pendle Stitches is the area distributor for Ashford Spinning Wheels and so you can get everything you would need for your spinning.  There are fibres, natural and hand dyed, Niddy Noddies, Lazykates and all of Ashford's wheels.  It's really worth a visit if you're considering buying a wheel because Liz is happy to let you try.

Lyn returned for her second time and brought along felted faces that she makes with her students, she's an art and textiles teacher.

They're so quirky and funny and each face, because it distorts while being needle felted takes on a personality of it's own.  Lyn was snapped up then and there to do workshops later on in the year and I'd love to have a go too.

Lyn appeared on my last blog post with her skein, which was her first.  Her second skein was a huge improvement (aren't all of our second skeins that way?). 

It's really worthwhile having a second day spinning, not long after the first, to prove to yourself that you can do it, and see the improvement that you make.

I'll be back at Pendle Stitches next month, 15th June and it would be lovely to meet anyone that would like to come along and have a spin.
