IMG_6679Spinning Mohair 5 Ways Class ($65) Learn all about mohair: how it differs from wool, what it’s strengths and weaknesses are, when it might be the perfect fiber for your project, and five ways to spin it!  Participants should bring a spinning wheel in good working order, 3 bobbins, a Lazy Kate, and all the usual spinning tools. This is an advanced beginner level class.

Most of my classes are taught at the store.  The major exception is Acid Dye Diva! where we will be using lots of jars of dyes.  That class is taught at the Farm where there is a shop with a concrete floor that can be spilled upon with wild abandon!

Private or Small Group Classes

I teach classes in the following fiber arts:

  • Knitting
  • Crochet
  • Rug Hooking
  • Weaving
  • Spinning
  • Dyeing (natural and chemical)
  • Felting.

I pride myself on being able to meet my students where they are in their fiber arts journey, and move them to the next level according to their own interests. To book some private class time, just give me a call (972-616-3276) or send me an email.

Fiber Arts Parties!

Want to do something different with your friends the next time you get together? I also host private fiber arts parties!  To plan your get together, tell me what you are interested in,  how much time you would like to spend, how many people are going to be invited, and whether you want to come to my shop or would prefer that I come to you.  I will put together a fiber arts activity just for you and your friends.  It’s lots of fun, and something different from going to a restaurant, shopping, or a movie!

Call Mary at the shop for more information! (972) 616-3276.
