Drop Spindle       

Learn to Spin with a Dropspindle

A 2 hour program, for children in grades 4 thru adult


This 2 hour class is designed for a small group of 3-6 students, 4th grade thru adult. Students will gain an appreciation for the self sufficient Western Pennsylvania settlers of the past as they learn to spin wool fiber into yarn. The Drop Spindle is the perfect way to learn to spin. The tools are simple, and the steps easily separated into discrete units for learning. All materials and equipment provided.


This program works well for scouts, homeschoolers, clubs and groups of friends. Groups of 3-6 participants can be accomodated

(Program offered year-round)

Fees: $15 per person. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult class member or chaperonne.

At the class, you may purchase a handcrafted drop spindle of your own, complete with a supply of wool roving for an additional $10 (cash only, please)
