I learned to spin in 1980 through the classes at the Roeder Home. Since then, I have taught classes in my home to many people, taken workshops from well-known instructors at weaving and spinning conferences, judged some wool shows, and had a 4-H club of young girls which was focused on spinning. They all had their own wheels and we demonstrated at different events. I have belonged to the Peace Arch Spinners and Weavers Guild and also the Whatcom Weavers Guild but am not a member of either at this time. I spin my own yarn for knitting and weaving and find it a very relaxing and enjoyable hobby. Creating a finished product from raw material is very satisfying and I love to share that experience with others!
