    Learn at your own pace through private lessons -- whet your appetite with a single workshop or work with Hadley to personalize your own spinning journey. Topics available: no-experience basics, make your own yarn start to finish, long draw, worsted vs. woolen spinning, traditional vs. navajo plying, fiber prep and color blending, adding glitz and beads to create art yarn.
