Welcome to Spinning up a Level with Katrina Stewart!

In this series, we are going to be exploring how you can begin to go from a beginner spinner to a spinner that can plan the exact kind of yarn they want to spin for a specific project, be it socks, a sweater, or a shawl. Throughout this series, we’ll be exploring various techniques of fibre choices, fibre preparation, drafting, plying, and finishing to achieve the hand-spun yarn of your dreams. This course also includes a comprehensive workbook and spinning exercises so you can try the demonstrated techniques for yourself and see which methods suit you and your spinning style.

We hope you’ll join us for Spinning up a Level!

Note: We recommended you print your Spinning Exercise worksheets on card stock since you'll be hanging your handspun samples on it.

About Instructor

Katrina Stewart

Katrina, a professional photographer by trade, has had an obsession with fibre all her life. She learned to knit and crochet as a child, but her passion was truly ignited when she learned to spin in 2014. She loves the thought that every individual who looks at a braid of fibre or runs their fingers over a skein of yarn will create their own unique functional piece of art. Something to be enjoyed for years to come.
